    Good Question.

    The easy way to start is to Customize using a co-creator
    http://www.shapeways.com/creator/ringpoem

    or

    create an item from a Sketch
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/112908/draw_your_own_earrings .html

    or

    Learn 3D modeling software, SketchUp is free and possibly the easiest to learn

    Blender is also free but has a steeper learning curve

    If you are a student you can download 3D software for free from Autodesk like
    Inventor, 3DS Max, Maya,

    Check out our tutorials on getting started too http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/

    Good luck
