Seohee

Born in South Korea and raised in Europe and USA, Seohee has been
making jewelry since high school. After graduating with a degree in
jewelry design from Rhode Island School of Design, she also attended
master’s program in Milan, Italy under Richemond group to obtain
master’s degree in luxury design. Since then, Seohee has worked with
the world’s most elite and luxury brands like Tiffany and Co. in NYC,

After so many years in the business, Seohee started Studio Remod
but also sells her own designs under her brand S/H KOH. However, Seohee
wanted to use her skills, her elite designer connections, and her desire to fill
the need for some jewelry makeovers to create a new concept that
would bring the custom jewelry business to the 21st century.

Corrie

Corrie studied fine art and history in the Pacific Northwest
but discovered her true passion in New York City: Jewelry.
Over the span of her career she’s been a jewelry designer to several
top brands including Kenneth Cole, Rachel Roy and Henri Bendel.
Corrie believes that our ancestors used jewelry to reflect their identities;
to protect and empower themselves just as we do today. Jewelry is our
modern talisman and should be treated with care and reverence and
she cannot wait to breath new life into your most cherished pieces.

Frequently asked questions

General

What is Studio Remod?+
Studio Remod is a new jewelry concept that provides an online jewelry makeover service where you can participate in bringing new life to "old" jewelry. We’ll repurpose part or all of your original jewelry to create something personalized for you as part of our Bring Your Own Jewelry (BYOJ) process.
How does it work?+
Simply fill out the ‘Get Started’ form and schedule a Skype design consultation with one of our jewelry experts. After the call, you’ll ship your jewelry with our provided prepaid shipping label. In the final stage, you’ll get three design options to choose from. You choose and we’ll make your custom jewelry.
Is it a regular subscription-type thing?+
No. Studio Remod is a one-off jewelry makeover service. We only make one-of-a-kind custom jewelry on a by-case basis.
Why would I use Studio Remod instead of buying a new piece of jewelry?+
We can bring new life to your “old” jewelry by repurposing part or all of its current parts. You’ll save materials, mementos, and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind custom made jewelry made just for you
Can I meet the designer in person for a consultation?+
We are located in the Diamond District in NYC for in-person meetings.
Is there minimum cost for jewelry makeover?+
We have a minimu price for jewelry makeover at $400.
What happens to my old jewelry that I sent to Studio Remod?+
We will use the specific elements from your old piece that you want us to use such as stones or metal. There are three options for any leftover materials: 1.The metal can be sent to you with your new jewelry at the end of our process or 2.we can sell the metal to a refinery and the dividends will be deducted from your final cost. (We do not credit the silver. We will send back the silver to you if your old jewelry was emdobied in silver. We will sell 14k-24k gold and Platinum to deduct from your final cost.) Or, 3.we can reuse the existing gold/platinum directly. However, due to the individual casting flask process, there is a $150 fee to reuse the same metal. Overall, this option still lowers final cost.
Do you accept any type of jewelry for jewelry makeover?+
Yes, we can accept any jewelry that has precious stones.

Design Process

What is the first step?+
Just fill out the ‘Get Started’ form and schedule a design consultation call with our jewelry expert.
How long is the design consultation and how many sessions are there?+
Usually the design consultation is thirty minutes. You can request additional consultations after you receive your design options.
What happens after I choose my designs?+
As soon as you choose a design you’ll enter our check-out process. After payment confirmation, Studio Remod will fabricate your piece.
How does my piece go from forgotten treasure to design to new jewelry?+
Our jewelry experts will create a 3D CAD model from your chosen design and will send it to a 3D printer. Then we’ll cast the 3D waxes into metal and purchase additional materials like findings and stones. Finally, we send the castings and the materials to our jewelry workshop for manufacturing. At the jewelry workshop the jewelers will clean the metal casting and make a mold. They’ll solder, stone set, and polish, and finally we’ll send you the brand-new-to-you piece.
Can I make revisions on the design?+
You can make revisions when you are choosing between the three design and you can provide additional revisions at this time. However, once the manufacturing process has begun there are no longer revision opportunities.
How long will it be before I receive my jewelry?+
Once the design has been decided upon, it normally takes 2-4 weeks depending on the difficulty of the design.
Is there a workmanship guarantee to cover my new jewelry?+
As long as you have your Studio Remod jewelry you can send it to us for repairs within a year.
