I received this piece on a day that I truly needed it! Not only did my outfit match it, as soon as I put it on, I could feel a sense of calmness! The pendant is larger and longer than I thought it would be (even though she has everything measured) and it's just PERFECT!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't love this piece more! Thank you Wendi!!!!!

The Key to Door 44
A very wise friend told me once that life begins at 40. I suppose I was something of a late bloomer because my life finally blossomed the year I turned 44. It was almost as if a floodgate opened up for me that year, and my life suddenly became fuller. Richer. And so much more fertile and abundant.
The number 44 has followed me for almost as long as I can remember. I see it frequently when checking the time. It's been on my license plates multiple times in multiple states. I notice it in addresses and on shopping receipts, and pretty much anywhere else that I see numbers. I've heard it said that 44 is the next master number to be defined and that compassion will be the hallmark of that master number. I like that explanation a lot, so that is what Door 44 means to me--it's a constant reminder to live compassionately.
One of the most difficult challenges that we all face is learning to be compassionate with ourselves, and the year I turned 44 is the year that I finally began to fully grasp that concept. Is it any wonder, then, that that is also the year my life began to flourish?
Door 44 Jewelry is about compassion. Compassion for yourself. Compassion for others. Compassion for this gorgeous planet which sustains us. My life is so full and abundant today that I simply want to share it with the world. So, I create jewelry with compassion, and I share it with you with the sincerest hope that you will pay it forward.
Start by being more compassionate with yourself, for that is the key to Door 44.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I enjoy working with customers to create something uniquely personal, and I welcome custom and personalized order inquiries. Please understand, though, that these orders take up a considerable amount of my time and energy to produce. For that reason, custom and personalized items are not eligible for sales or promotional discounts.
As custom orders tend to vary quite a bit in complexity and price, I will set all other transaction terms (such as a security deposit or guaranteed ship date) on an individual basis. Convo me with as much detail as you can provide about the piece you'd like me to create, and we'll work out the final transaction terms together.
Earrings: I use 20 gauge wire for all pierced ear wires and posts, unless otherwise stated in the product description. You'll also find the general length and width listed in the product description. When in doubt, convo me for clarification.
Necklaces: I specify both the chain length and the pendant drop in the product description. The chain length is measured from end to end. The pendant drop is measured from the bail (the point where the pendant attaches to the chain) to the bottom of the pendant.
Bracelets: The sizes stated in the product descriptions for bracelets indicate the inner circumference of the band. I can generally make any bracelet to a custom size. Convo me for more info on custom bracelet sizes.
I use raw, uncoated copper and silver wire, which is treated to achieve an aged patina unless a customer specifically requests a bright metal finish.
To maintain the original finish, store your jewelry in an airtight container, such as a Ziploc bag, when not in use. Keep all jewelry away from harsh chemicals, such as perfumes or cleansers, and keep it dry. You can clean your jewelry in a solution of warm water and mild dish soap. You can also restore shine with a jewelry polishing cloth.
One of the things I love most about raw metals is that they take on a warm, natural patina with regular wear. Embrace the natural beauty of your Door 44 Jewelry. Wear it often, and it will reward you with a beautiful glow that is uniquely yours!
Gift wrapping and packaging
All Door 44 Jewelry is shipped gift ready in a brown paper pillow box tied with a black grosgrain ribbon. I may add seasonal adornments to my packages or change the color of the ribbon for various holidays. However, the brown paper pillow boxes are standard. You'll find pictures of both my standard packaging and my holiday packaging in my shop updates.
Please specify in the order comments if you'd like a package to be shipped directly to a gift recipient without a purchase receipt. If you'd like a handwritten note to be sent with a gift, include that message in the order comments as well.
I am not actively seeking wholesale customers at this early stage in my shop's development, but I am always open to speaking with buyers about wholesale orders.
My wholesale discounts range from 30% to 50% off my retail prices, depending on the size and complexity of the order. I do not have a wholesale catalog presently, but (again) I am open to developing a catalog and/or merchandising fixture if I start to receive wholesale inquiries.
Opening orders shall be for a minimum of $500 in merchandise, payable up front. I may extend terms and smaller replenishment orders at my discretion as I develop relationships with wholesale buyers.
I fully guarantee my craftsmanship for five years from the date of purchase. If your jewelry needs to be repaired, resized, or even just cleaned and refreshed, convo me so we can work out the specifics of your request. All shipping costs and insurance, if desired, are the responsibility of the buyer.
