GCD: Custom Jewelry Design

We are currently in process of creating close to 250 unique charms for our two craft shows coming up this fall! We are VERY stoked about this but also forgot to mention that we do custom orders! In fact, we LOVE custom orders because they give us a chance to work one-on-one with our customers and provide us an outlet that pushes our ideas and keeps them fresh.

We’ve put together a 4-step process to show you just how easy it can be to design a one-of-a-kind Green Couch Design jewelry piece. Here’s what you can expect from us when you are ready to move forward with your custom order.


STEP 1: Go to our online shop and purchase PHASE I of the “Custom Design” Jewelry listing. Leave us any initial design ideas/suggestions you would like us to start with in the comment section when you check out. If you have images in mind, send us a convo through Etsy with attached images or send them to cale@greencouchdesign.net.

STEP 2: We will send you initial design concepts in a hand-rendered illustration format. Once the first round of design(s) are sent you can make two rounds of edits. We will also include the additional cost to build each design with each illustration presented. This will ensure that there are no surprises or additional costs (outside of shipping) when you purchase PHASE II.


STEP 3: After two rounds of edits we will post the final design/illustrations on Etsy as PHASE II. We will then send you a link of the listing and accept your purchase of PHASE II as your final approval of the jewelry design.

Once PHASE II is purchased we will begin building your custom order, package it and send it your way! Each piece is hand crafted with copper tubing and steel rivets and is then acid etched and fired to the perfect patina. The concrete is a custom mixture, which is also acid etched after drying to give it color and to bring out the aggregate. No two pieces are alike.

Each piece comes with our unique magnetic clasps that work great for guys and gals along with a handmade Green Couch Design tag. Although the pieces are created from concrete they are not heavy! In fact, they are very light weight and feel great around your neck!

We package and ship each necklace in these nifty Green Couch Design bags and seal them with baker’s twine (awe).

STEP 4: ENJOY! Show off your piece, wear it everyday and everywhere and send us photos and feedback so that we know just how much you LUUUVVVV it! We swear it REALLY does make our day when we hear from our customers and who knows maybe you’ll even be featured right here on our blog (like this guy!) ;)

“Thanks for creating an awesome custom necklace so fast! It got to me right on time & made my friend (who is not a jewelry guy) very happy! I highly recommend this seller. Very patient with my millions of possibly annoying questions! Thank you for such a badass work of art!” – Mary

We love the rugged individualism and the strength within each necklace. A truly unique piece of art suited for both men and women. Purchase PHASE I today and let’s get your custom order rolling!
