About

ILLUMIN Designs was born out of love- of humanity, of nature, of the desire to create and the passion to help 'illuminate' another's journey.

Every piece of our art is meticulously handcrafted- jewelry inspired by nature, sculpted with intention. Every piece is one of a kind, as YOU are, as in nature, as with every organic stone. Our designs are inspired by the crystal itself to showcase the gem, mindful not to distract from it. Then the copper is "grown" over the sculptures and let take its organic course. The irregularities of the copper growth are intentional, beautiful in its naturally formed state.

I am hands-on in every aspect of our shop: gems and minerals are hand-selected(personally mined when I can), self-taught in jewelry making(designing, sculpting, painting, electroforming, polishing), in photography, and personally packaged- truly a journey from my hands to yours.

ILLUMIN Designs have given back to the community through various charities and foundations, dedicated to empowering, inspiring and elevating others.

Thank you for helping us spread the light and letting us be a part of your journey.

Illuminate yourself, illuminate another. We rise together.

Yours,
Angel

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We are eager to collaborate with you to bring your vision to life! As each piece is individually made, we can design and customize your piece at no extra cost. Please share what stone resonates with you, the style, occasion or anything you have in mind, and we will work together to make it perfect, within your budget. Allow about 1 week for completion and delivery.

Sizing details

Unless the individual listing states the piece is adjustable, the ring size is generally fixed and in MOST situations, can be made smaller but not bigger, due to the electroforming process. If you love a piece but it's not your size, let us know and we can discuss what we can do with the sizing. Otherwise, we would love to make you a custom piece that's similar, or better!

Care instructions

Every piece is a delicate work of art. Please treat it with care as the crystals and the copper growth are naturally formed during the electroforming process, and can be chipped with force. To best maintain the protective metal shield, remove rings before washing hands, applying lotions, or handling harsh detergents. To slow natural oxidation, you can apply clear nail polish to the copper every 6 to 12 months depending on use.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our pieces arrive gift ready in a black velvet drawstring bag, nested inside of an elegant satin-finished metal box. We love the feeling of opening up a pretty box and finding a treasure inside. We want your gift to be perfect, and give that sense of excitement to whomever you decide to gift it to. Especially if that person is you.

Why COPPER

Wearing copper jewelry for medicinal and healing purposes have long been a part of history for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Eastern and Egyptian civilizations. Medicinally, copper is an essential mineral for humans, and wearing copper jewelry has the benefit of slow copper absorption. It is the third most abundant trace mineral that can be found in the human body. Said benefits have included alleviating headaches, arthritis, joint pain, and zinc deficiency can be effectively treated with the aid of copper jewelry. The mineral can be used to improve blood circulation, to increase overall physical energy, and to detoxify the body.

COPPER: metaphysical properties

Copper provides a harmonic connection between the physical and astral bodies and aligns the subtle bodies. It is said to be bring "luck" to the wearer, positivity, prosperity, abundance, and also known as the metal of "love", as it opens one's heart to love energies. Copper can combat lethargy, passivity, restlessness, excitability, and non-acceptance of oneself. It stimulates initiative, optimism, diplomacy, and independence. Copper activates and opens the base and sacral chakras, advancing and stabilizing the energies of intuition, sexuality, desire, and vitality - directing these energies toward the pursuit of one's path of evolution. It allows one to recognize the barriers which are in the path of one's development.
