What's Behind Door 44?

Hi! I’m Wendi. The wife, stepmom, copper jewelry lover, novice crocheter, and all around DIY-obsessed crazy plant lady behind Door 44 Studios.

A very wise friend once told me that life begins at 40. I suppose that makes me a late bloomer because my life finally began to really flourish the year I turned 44. It was almost as if a previously locked door opened up for me that year. My world suddenly became fuller, richer, and a lot more interesting. In case you’re wondering, that’s where the name Door 44 comes from.

You'll find a large collection of copper jewelry for sale here. Every piece of jewelry that you see in my shop was lovingly handcrafted by my own hands in my little studio. I’m a life-long maker who’s dabbled in everything from stained glass to needle arts through the years. But my true love is designing and making jewelry.

Are you an aspiring wire weaver? If so, you've come to the right place. In addition to my original copper jewelry designs, you'll also find lots of component-based wire jewelry tutorials that will help you build a solid foundation of wire working skills. I enjoy teaching and I'm deeply passionate about sharing my craft.

If you've ever wanted to learn the art of wire weaving, but you've been intimidated by all of the complex wire jewelry pieces that you've seen online, I can help. I'll teach you everything you need to know to set you confidently on the path toward wire weaving mastery.

Thank you so much for supporting Door 44 Studios. I couldn't do what I love without your patronage.

    I am a wife, a stepmom, a jewelry artist, and a blogger. Mostly, though, I’m just another student at the University of Hard Knocks where I'm pursuing a degree in self-mastery with an emphasis on personal enlightenment. Thanks for shopping 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.

Sizing details

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.

Care instructions

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.

Wholesale availability

I am not actively seeking wholesale customers at this time.

Jewelry Repairs

I fully guarantee my craftsmanship for two 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.
