Resin and Wood Nature Jewelry Featuring the World's Flora.

BuildWithWood pieces are one-of-a-kind wearable nature features made from laser cut oak, resin, and the amazing variety of the world's flora. I'm a native Michigander living in Chicago, so many of my specimens are foraged from the midwest, and I especially like to celebrate our native species!

I especially focus on the bizarre and eccentric details in nature that normally go unnoticed- but deserve to be highlighted. Things like spore patterns on the underside of fern leaves, or the branching structure of a Pixie Cup lichen formation are generally more interesting to me than showy flowers. Each piece is 100% handmade by me in my home studio, and one piece can take weeks to complete.

My appreciation of the unique aspects of my subjects ultimately makes my pieces more significant to me, and hopefully also to you.

Returns and exchange details
I work hard to make sure all of my measurements are accurate as possible. Please read over the description to make sure you are happy with the size of the piece (and the hardware) before making a purchase. If you have any questions or would like a different view of any particular piece, just ask! If for any reason your pendant arrives damaged, convo me and I will work something out.
Payments may be made via PayPal or Direct Checkout.
All domestic orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail (USPS says 2-5 days, but in my experience it can take up to 10 days to arrive during peak mail dates/holidays). If you need it sooner, please select priority mail (1-3 day delivery time). Insurance is available upon request.

International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International. International customers are responsible for any additional taxes or fees imposed by the receiving country.

I'm happy to ship your item via your another method as well (i.e. if you need something sooner, or just don't like the USPS...) Just convo me and let me know what you prefer, and I'll figure out what the cost will be.
Additional policies and FAQs
Resin jewelry is very durable under normal conditions, however, the shiny surface can be scratched by sharp objects or dented by pressure, so it's best to store them individually. To keep plants from eventually fading, try to store them out of direct sunlight. If the surface collects smudges or fingerprints, just polish it back to a shine with a cotton cloth. It's best to keep them dry and out of extreme temperatures. Resin can become slightly malleable if heated, however, it will return to it's normal hardened state once it cools.

If your item is a gift and you want to add a message, convo me and I'll make it happen.
