Finish That Pendant With One of Our New Necklace Chains!

We’re always looking for ways to help you create complete finished products, so we’re extremely excited to announce today’s launch of necklace and pendant chains at Shapeways! Now you and your jewelry customers will be able to purchase a traditionally manufactured chain or cord with your pendant or necklace.

For this launch, we will be offering four different chains and one cord, to match your pendant or necklace’s finish and style. There are two ways to purchase chains: On all pendant product pages, a button will be provided to order one of the chains. You choose the chain or cord that is just right for the pendant you’re purchasing.

Alternatively, for those who need to stock up on chains for sales off of the Shapeways site, chains are available for purchase apart from products. You can find the link to the chain offering here.
