Interactive Jewelry Making

I just spotted an google ad on Craftster for the Intelligirl Jewelry Maker. Thinking it was some new toy for making jewelry (I have a weakness for toys you can make stuff with like the Easy Bake!) so I just had to check it out.

It wasn’t a toy. But what it is, is actually pretty interesting. It’s a website (for teen girls) where you design your own jewelry by clicking and dragging beads into place and then when you’re done you can buy it whatever you just designed.

Here’s a lovely bracelet I designed:

Now granted, we Craftsters could make this jewelry ourselves in an instant but I just thought it was interesting concept and worth mentioning here!

    That is ever so much fun! It reminds me of (im not even sure if that’s still operational) that I used to fiddle around on.

    Single-strand designs I don’t have too much trouble visualizing on my own, or roughing out on my bead board. Now, if it could do multi-strand necklaces, that’d be *very* helpful. Here’s hoping some bead-loving programmer gets an inspiration and starts coding… 🙂

    I always wanted to do something like that with knit scarves, write up a flash program to let people design their own scarf and then I could knit it.
