About

Unique pieces you'll feel awesome wearing. Beautiful, meaningful jewellery and objects you'll treasure.

{ I LOVE TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY }

The littlest things can have a big impact on your happiness...A long walk with your dog, a good laugh with a great friend, the perfect cup of coffee…

I want to add a little extra happiness to your life with jewellery that is meaningful as well as beautiful. Each piece is individually hand crafted in sterling silver or other metals and designed to be simple yet distinctive. I hope that your Raven and Wren piece will be one of those little things in your life that brings a smile or starts a conversation.

{ A CREATIVE WHIM AND THE START OF A DREAM }

Raven and Wren was born out of a creative whim, the love of travel and a desire to connect with others.

My name is Candice and I am the designer and maker behind Raven and Wren.

I’ve always been a bit of a Nomad. Born in Brisbane, Queensland I spent most of my early life moving between the city of my birth and various towns around tropical Far North Queensland. The constant relocations throughout my life have gifted me with a love of travel and desire for new experiences.

On a creative whim, I decided to attend a series of beginner jewellery workshops held by a local studio. I was hooked from the start. I have always been a creative dilettante and I have turned my hand to many creative pursuits but jewellery making inspired me like nothing else. I passionately want to share the joy I take in making my designs and hope that when you purchase a Raven and Wren piece it is something that adds a little of that joy into your life.

Working with wax is a fun and rewarding process (albeit a messy one, as I usually end up with wax shavings, silver dust and tools all over my studio!). While my studio may be a little chaotic, it is my sanctuary. Seeing the metamorphosis of an idea from quick sketch to wax carving then a final cast item is remarkable.

----------------------------------------------------------------
{ PIECES AS UNIQUE AS YOU ARE }

My goal is to provide you with a fresh, eclectic collection of pieces with my own distinctive artistic style. All of my pieces are handmade, so production is small and exclusive. Wherever possible I use recycled or environmentally sustainable materials and this includes the precious metals. All of my pieces are tested to ensure the quality of both the design and materials so you can rest assured you will be able to treasure it for years to come.

Thank you for giving me the chance to give you something you will love and for helping me to grow my dream! I appreciate you taking the time to visit my shop and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or just want to say hi!

I believe everyone should be able to buy beautiful jewellery and things that make them feel good. So if you love one of my items, I am open to setting up an instalment plan for pieces over $100. This way you can split your payments over a period of time between 1 and 3 months. We will agree the payments at the beginning and then your first payment reserves your item.
