Mixed media painting created using acrylic paint and embroidery floss on canvas of red camellia flowers from a park in Seattle, WA. Varying tones of green surround the three soft and luscious red camellia flowers in this painting. Queens of winter flowers, camellias are attractive evergreen shrubs that are highly prized for their exquisite beauty and blooms. Red camellia flowers represent love, passion, and deep desire.
Its dimensions are 12"x12" and framed (14"x14").

Inspired by the world around her, Lauren Quist explores how light touches various surfaces through her mixed media paintings.  Embroidery floss and acrylic paint interact with each other while light highlights their different textures in her art and creates harmony with the contrasting mediums.  Influenced by illustrative line-based art and impressionism, she combines these styles to bring forth the subject of her work. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, she creates art that deals with the documentation of moments in time and the question of how these moments can be presented. Her mixed media artworks are based on these moments that she has photographed and from images in her imagination.

Lauren is an award-winning mixed-media artist from Seattle, WA.  Although she studied art at the University of Washington, she is a self-taught painter and embroiderer. She created her first mixed media painting for her senior studio using oil paints and embroidery floss on canvas. Since then, she has participated in several art exhibits in the Pacific Northwest showcasing her mixed media work.  With each piece of art she creates, she begins with a photograph that she has taken.  She sketches it, paints it, then adds additional texture with embroidery, allowing light to dance dynamically on her canvas.

Ring Size:

WEND rings are hand-crafted with texture all around the band. For that reason, they are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to re-size.

Some designs are more easily re-sized than others, but it is best for everyone if we are certain of your size before we make your ring.

For this reason, in many cases we cannot offer re-sizing of your ring.

 How do we find your size?

  1. If you are in the Seattle area, we will size your finger together at our studio.
  1. For $5, we will mail you a sizing grid for you to test out at home.
  1. Visit two jewelry stores and ask for a complimentary sizing (happens all the time). If both stores size you the same, we can probably trust that outcome. If the two stores size you differently (hopefully they are close), go to a third store as a tiebreaker.

Necklace Size:

The necklaces in the WEND collection come in different lengths, which are noted in the descriptions. Necklaces 24" or longer do not have a clasp.

Why? Because they slide over your head. Clasps serve an important purpose, but if they are not needed, WEND doesn't use them.

Clasps can get caught in hair, they can come undone, and they can visually distract from the necklace.
