Make yourself a Gnome

Have you ever wanted to create your own jewelry?  Objects d’art?  How about a lawn gnome that looks like you!? If you’ve always wanted to release your designy beast but never had the time, resources, or expertise in fabrication – well, here’s your new favorite website.  The Shapeways website is the ultimate co-creation service and community.  Here you can turn your ideas into fully fleshed items – usually within 10 days (item at your doorstop).  The CEO of Shapeways (Peter Weijmarhausen) gave an amazing presentation at the PSFK Conference in New York last week. I was blown away and just had to share.  To be clear – it was just was one of many exceptional design stories presented at the conference, many of which I will write about in this space.  Oh, and you’re welcome.
