About

Organic minimalist jewelry for adventurous hearts.

+Welcome+
Is Was + Will Be is an Asheville-based jewelry collection created with an emphasis on thoughtfully sourced materials. We are inspired by a sense of timelessness, imagining that our designs could coexist with styles of the distant past or the inevitable future. We see life as the journey; everything is constantly expanding and molting, and our design process mimics this organic, fluid process.

The result is an aesthetic of timelessness and rugged beauty. We hope you find something here that will accompany you through your many seasons.

We are honored to be Featured Sellers on Etsy! Read our interview here:

///OUR PROCESS///

Proudly made on Earth, we utilize manufacturing processes that inspire us. We use primitive techniques when possible, technology where efficient, and little to no toxic substances. All designs are fabricated in our Asheville-based studio.

///ABOUT OUR MATERIALS///

We focus on salvaged and vintage materials and source additional goods from small businesses who embrace the same values as us and manufacturers who have reputations for the quality of their products.

///JEWELRY CARE///

We leave our brass untreated and raw. With age and wear, raw brass will tarnish. This is intentional and results in jewelry that evolves with the wearer. The shine can be renewed with brass polish or household ketchup.

///CHANGE THE WORLD///

We believe in living compassionately. Here is a list of causes we have supported in the past and/or are presently involved in:

GlobalGiving.org: Emergency Tsunami Relief Fund
The Gambari Fund: Japan Relief Funds
Community Collection: Benefit for Outside In
Portlandsown.org: Various

Have a cause you'd like us to be part of? We'd love to hear from you. Reach out at info [!at] iswas-willbe.com

I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

-Jack London

Additional policies and FAQs
ETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES:
We exercise great concern when sourcing our materials, and we are always on a hunt for the most stunning, rare, and ethical materials. The more intricate the story of a component, the more infatuated we become. We focus on salvaged, vintage, and repurposed materials; we source additional goods from small businesses who embrace the same values as us and manufacturers who have reputations for the quality of their products.

GIFT-WRAPPING:
All purchases come thoughtfully gift-wrapped and ready to give, or keep! We take extra measures to use eco-friendly and salvaged packaging. We love our planet, our universe, our galaxy!

JEWELRY CARE:
Many of our creations are made using brass, a copper/zinc alloy. It is a romantic metal, giving the allure of gold without the hefty price. In efforts to minimize harmful chemicals in the production of our designs, we leave our brass untreated and raw. With age and wear, raw brass will tarnish. We quite like the look of tarnished brass, but if its not your thing, you can always polish it to shine with common brass polish. We carefully source our metals to ensure they are lead and nickel free.

WHOLESALE:
Is Was + Will Be is a global brand and we are always looking for new shops to carry our brand. For more information, please contact us at: info [!at] iswas-willbe.com
