Adding just a slight silver pigment to the resin crystals was a purposeful shift away from how I usually pack resin crystals full of rainbows. I don't want to forget that even the shapes themselves are lovely.
This ogre looking galactic darling was one of my first experiments with extreme texture. I love it so.

About

Unique, mystical and artful tendencies of the natural world.

Every piece of Wander and Rain's jewelry revolves around nature. Most pieces are cast from natural objects such as crystals and often feature bits of forest, river, prairie and even some raw semi precious stones. If nature isn't being directly captured in the resin it is being mimicked with an interesting array of colors and textures.
Because the process is very scientific and experimental another common feel is the mystical nature that comes with witchy mixing and tampering.
Wander & Rain doesn't just stop at the natural world that we see with our eyes, there are also hints of the mythical world such as pieces being inspired by mermaids, unicorns, fairies, elves, ect.

The overall goal of Wander & Rain's jewelry is to harness the unique, mystical and artful tendencies of the natural world.

Frequently asked questions
Rings Cannot Be Resized

Due to the fact that the bands of all my rings are cast within layers of resin for durability, I do not resize. It is a grueling process that takes twice as much time as making the piece and can often destroy the original sought after look.

Please Measure Your Ring Size Before Purchase

It is the responsibility of the buyer to take the opportunity to measure for their ring size before purchasing.
Returns for sizing issues will only be accepted if the fault is mine.

How to Measure Ring Size

Cut a thin strip of paper and wrap the paper around your finger where you intend the ring to sit. Mark the spot where the paper meets. Lay flat to measure the distance with a ruler.

In millimeters here are the corresponding US ring sizes:

Size 3: 44.2mm

Size 3.5: 45.4mm

Size 4: 46.8mm

Size4.5: 48mm

Size 5: 49.3mm

Size 5.5: 50.6mm

Size 6: 51.8mm

Size 6.5: 53.1mm

Size 7: 54.4mm

Size 7.5: 55.7mm

Size 8: 56.9mm

Size 8.5: 58.2mm

Size 9: 59.5mm

Size 9.5: 60.8mm

Size 10: 62.1mm

Size 10.5: 63.3mm

Size 11: 64.6mm

Size 11.5: 65.9mm

Size 12: 67.2mm

Size 12.5: 68.4mm

Size 13: 69.7mm

Size 13.5: 71mm

Size 14: 72.3mm

Will Copper Pieces Tarnish or Discolor Skin?

It should be expected that copper jewelry cannot be permanently sealed no matter the maker. That being said I do use a seal meant to offset tarnish. What that means is that the overall look of the piece is unlikely to be compromised but over time it is likely that the coating in places that constantly touch the skin will wear. For example the inner band of rings is only expected to last 6 months to 1 year if worn daily because of moisture and friction where as the face of the ring is known to remain fresh for years. When coating wears it is gradual giving you time to reseal the worn areas with a bit of clear coat nail polish.

Bangles and Arm Bands Are Not Fully Adjustable

If an arm band or bangle features a gap, please note that it is not meant to be stretched to form a wider band. The gap is intended for minor adjustments so that its long term wearer can have a more custom fit. The bangle can be gently adjusted into place once slipped over the hand and on the wrist/arm. If the gap is stretched drastically it is likely that the electroplated copper may crack and the piece's look may be compromised. For this reason returns will not be accepted for improper stretching.

Custom Orders Are Not Available At This Time

I am putting a great deal of effort into creating stock for a busy summer vending season so to enhance my focus I am not taking customs at this time.

Custom Order Pricing & Payment

Custom orders are not being accepted at this time but when I can make them available again:

The first step to having your custom created is to message me with your idea, from there I will quote you on the price and create a new listing. If you are requesting that a piece be re-created with the only difference being color or size, the price will reflect the referenced listing price.

Because there are many variables during each process of my work I only request half of the quoted price as payment in advance. The other half can be paid once I finish the piece and add pictures of the exact piece you would receive.

If you choose not to buy the custom made for you, the advanced payment will be not be refunded but kept for my time.
