Announcement    Welcome to our Etsy Shop! We specialize in Medieval Jewelry, Shields, Clothing Accessories, and other items inspired by Viking and Celtic art. Since many of our shop members have Scandinavian ancestry, we really put our heart and soul into our Viking products, which have slowly dominated our business as we've grown over the years.

We started out selling unique hand-painted shields with original designs, and are still widely known for that aspect of our business. Today, we are the largest and most diverse Medieval / Renaissance Shield supplier in the world. We sell on our website, on Etsy, eBay, at fairs and festivals, and to a few large companies in order to reach a wide range of customers. We've even provided shields to some popular movies and television shows you may have seen. Since we began in 2002, we have created literally thousands of unique and original designs. So whether you're looking for something historic, fantasy-based, or completely custom, we either have it or can make it for you.

Besides shields, we offer an extensive collection of Medieval Jewelry. While our focus is mostly on Viking and Celtic jewelry inspired by historically accurate pieces, we do offer our share of fantasy items and treasures from other cultures. Most of our jewelry is created using traditional time-honored techniques that date back many centuries. This is because we pride ourselves in creating items that are not mass-produced and don't look like they came right out of a factory. We love making these wearable treasures, and you'll love wearing them. So check out our inventory today and join our ever-growing legion of satisfied customers!

About WestWolfRenaissance

Sales 33,710
On Etsy since 2012

West Wolf Renaissance - Origins

West Wolf Renaissance started with a simple desire to reignite and reinvent the art of medieval shield-making. In 2002 that journey began, slowly and surely crafting unique shields and then expanding into jewelry and clothing items. We've grown and added some skilled craftspeople to our team along the way. At this point, we like to think we've helped spark and shape a new Renaissance of shield-crafting and medieval wares in general.

Our goal is to continue to push the envelope and resurrect the past in new and exciting ways, to blur the lines between Fine Art and functional objects, and to offer the public unique and original items found nowhere else. So join us today and join our ever-growing legion of satisfied customers!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Thanks for visiting and considering our shop for your needs. We're a small team making unique and original products inspired by history. Here's a short FAQ for West Wolf Renaissance to help answer anything you might want to know.

FAQ:

Do you design and make your own items?

Yes. Almost everything we sell is designed by us and made in shop in the United States. We do have a production partner that assists us with making a few items, especially when it gets near the busy Christmas season. But the majority of our products are made by our small team of talented craftspeople. We're currently developing a series of production videos that shows how items are designed and made. That way you can see the mold-making, carving, casting, and forging process of some of our items. We think the process and techniques are fascinating and hope you will too.

How soon can I receive my purchase?

We keep most of our items in stock and ready for immediate shipment. So your order should arrive in about 4 or 5 Days for addresses within the United States. If you live outside the United States, we always ship via USPS which usually takes about 2 weeks but can also depend on the speed of the destination country's customs department. So international shipments have more variables which can affect delivery times. Should you require faster delivery or have more questions, please message us and we'll see what we can do.

Do you take custom orders?

Yes, we do accept custom orders. We're always busy making custom shield projects for people, but we usually don't accept as many custom jewelry and metalwork orders due to the process being more involved and time-consuming. There are some times during the year when custom requests are not possible due to our high workload, so this can vary depending on what we've got going on.

How long will it take for you to have it made?

Items that are Custom or are Made-to-Order typically take about 2 or 3 weeks. Our workload changes throughout the year, with our busiest months being November and December. We can sometimes prioritize your order and move it to the top of the list for and extra Rush Fee. Please message us for availability and price for a rush order request.

What are your prices for custom shields?

Our prices for custom shields depend mainly on the complexity of the design, as that is usually what determines the amount of time spent on the project. If you already have a picture or image of what you'd like done, just send that our way with a detailed description of the project and we'll get back to you with a price quote as soon as possible.

Will there be any international customs or import fees associated with my package?

Since every country in the world is different and has different laws and regulations regarding international packages, we cannot know for certain if you will be expected to pay a customs fee. That is usually the buyer's responsibility to know or determine prior to ordering. Whether there is or is not an extra customs fee or tax associated with a package is determined by the buyer's country and has nothing to do with us, the seller. Most of the time, if there is a customs fee for some reason, the amount is small and is determined by the overall value of the item being shipped. So if you are purchasing something with a very high value, you might want to check with your local post office and see if any customs or import charges will be necessary.

Do you accept Wholesale Orders?

We've recently started to limit accepting wholesale orders. We had some bad experiences with our items being copied, cast, and remade without our consent, so we're currently trying to limit the availability and spread of our items online. There may still be some circumstances where we can offer a discount for a large order, so please ask us beforehand and maybe we can still give you a deal.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Thanks again!

Shipping
Almost all of our domestic and international shipments will be sent with USPS. Sometimes very large box shipments will go out with UPS Ground within the continental United States. As always, we combine items into one package to save you money and give you the best possible discount. Most of our jewelry ships for free within the United States, and we only use the actual calculated USPS shipping cost for international orders. So there's never any inflated over-priced shipping expenses.
