@thebijoufactory Modern DIY The Bijou Factory is an innovative line of DIY jewelry kits that are uniquely curated and simple to make. It was founded on the belief that DIY jewelry does not have to look homespun. The Bijou Factory is the brainchild of Anne-Sophie Cauchy, a French native and FIT metalsmith graduate, who spent a decade mass-designing jewelry for household names before being disillusioned by the lowering quality-standards and high wastage of “fast fashion”. She now seeks to educate her customers about materials and empower them to be the architect of their own special piece. Easy to make All our kits contain simple illustrated instructions and it takes on average 30 mns or less  to complete one piece of jewelry. Best of all, it requires no pliers so anyone can do it. Luxurious components We use curated materials for a high-end finish and work exclusively with a network of domestic suppliers and small artisans around the world to ensure quality and sustainability. All of our kits are designed and made in Venice, CA.
