We’ve already written a lot about Love Heals since we love just about everything they do. So we shouldn’t have been surprised when they sent us info on a new project they were launching called, The Design Studio.
The online design interface (the first of its kind) lets you become the designer choosing handcrafted charms, strands and pendants and manipulate them into stunning, personalized necklaces.
“For the past few years, Love Heals has been receiving daily requests for custom jewelry. In order to serve both our stores and our customers better, we wanted to develop an accessible design process that allows everyone to bring their creative instincts to the table,” says Love Heals President Gunnar Lovelace. “The stores and our customers know the quality of artisan work that we put into every piece of jewelry we design – and we want to share that experience, as well as our mission of giving back.”
How to start? All you have to do is simply drag and drop the various eye catching pieces onto the “stage” to see what looks good and keep going like the little raven you are or you can keep it minimal. It’s actually a lot of fun.
I designed a piece that when all was said and done went for $192, but it was absolutely perfect in every way. And thanks to Love Heals Jewelry love for EcoSalon readers, they’re allowing us to offer a 30 percent discount to you in celebration of their launch. Just enter DESIGN at the checkout.
After each “guest designer,” has chosen from the thousands of ethically sourced, handcrafted materials and which gets sent off to be assembled by the pros, they will receive their design within 7-15 business days.
And the best part of this post?
If you’ve read down this far, you’re invited to an EcoSalon/Love Heals design contest where if you have the winning design, you get it free!
Simply design your necklace and select “share” within The Design Studio’s interface by emailing it to us at editor@ecosalondotcom. We’ll pick the winner a week later and the winning design will be gifted once we make the decision.
So get designing!
