Don’t wear the same jewelry as everyone else — design your own with Julbox

In our age of mass production, being unique can be hard. And when it comes to accessories, it seems like every trendy guy and gal is sporting the same piece. So if you’re looking for a way to ensure your individuality, you may want to check out Julbox, a new platform that allows amateur designers to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, because, you know, you designed it. The online design tool promises to empower “creative entrepreneurs without any prior design knowledge or experience to sell their accessories online,” or just create pieces for themselves.

Founded in February 2015 by husband and wife team Yoav and Maya Caspi, along with Nimrod Shory, the digital platform was born out of Maya’s experience as a professional jewelry designer. After realizing that truly unique jewelry is expensive not only to buy but to produce as well, the trio decided to create a tool that would empower everyone to take part in the creative jewelry-making process.

All the pieces you make on Julbox are set at a fixed price, so you won’t have to break the bank just to customize. To start designing, simply drag and drop various shapes, symbols, letters, and more into the interface, and revel in your exclusivity. You can even top off your creation with a Swarovski crystal, and then preview the whole design so you’ll know exactly how it’ll hang — whether it’s a bracelet, necklace, or pair of earrings. And you can choose to have your final piece delivered in either 18k gold or sterling silver.

If designing sounds like too much work, never fear — creative entrepreneurs are also able to open an online store on the Julbox marketplace, and sell their own creations to others. So if you want to leave the creativity to the experts, you can still have them design a custom piece for you, and help support an entrepreneur.

And because Julbox connects to a range of social channels, professional and amateur designers alike can display their collections to friends and followers, allowing you to build some interest in your budding design talents.
