WEND Custom rings and heirloom Makeovers

Pathway Along the Water's Edge

18K Heirloom Gold, Heirloom Diamonds, Heirloom Gems

I had my very traditional engagement ring and wedding ring since 1984. I hardly ever wore them as I was hoping to have them updated in a new setting that reflected a more organic, modern feel.

I walked into WEND for the West Seattle Art Walk and spoke with Wendy about how her studio came to be. I knew immediately she was who I was looking for to create a one of a kind piece of jewelry art! 

I added my mom’s 1947 engagement ring gold that had been destroyed in a garbage disposal, a high school graduation gift ring from my parents as well as a kinked up gold necklace I never wore.

It is truly a beautiful heirloom preserving my precious gems as well as adding 2 new birthstone gems to represent our children. 

My ring incorporates two distinctive features of the PNW. Wavy lines give the feel and movement of water and the gems are the terrain of our breathtaking mountains.

The collaborative process brought forth a stunning and meaningful art piece that is a joy to wear! Wendy is a great listener as well as a creative genius.

Lucid

14K Heirloom Gold and Heirloom Diamond

I had the pleasure of stumbling upon Wendy's gorgeous store one day while out strolling the neighborhood with a friend. It was kismet meeting her.

I had been wanting to update my almost 20 year old engagement ring for years. The prongs were wearing and I was too scared to wear my beloved ring.

When I saw Wendy's designs, if was love at first sight! I had been thinking of updating my ring in a similar smooth and modern design. Wendy was so kind and easy to talk too.

When I picked up my new ring, tears rolled out of my eyes. It was perfect. I could not be happier with my new ring and I am constantly looking at it. It truly gives me the biggest smile everyday.

"The ability to design our own custom wedding bands and having them made with such intention and care was one of the best decisions we made surrounding our wedding.

Working with Wendy was such a great experience from our initial meeting to discuss the design to the detail and thought she put into the final presentation.

My husband and I are farmers who are constantly working with our hands. We grow garlic, golden beets, sungold tomatoes, and so many more on our farm in the San Juan Islands.

I love that our custom wedding bands are so well made and comfortable that we can wear them at all times. They reflect who we are and our special bond."

Genesis

“I have several friends who all have the exact same wedding bands and engagement rings. Their husbands all bought them off the same online retailer, around the same time. Getting to play a role in the custom design process meant that I got to put our story into our rings before I even got to wear them.

One of the diamonds belonged to my great-grandmother and the other two were gifted to me by my grandfather when I was young. This was the perfect way to use them. Getting to put my family's past into a ring that represents our future was incredibly special to both of us. It also means that these rings will be heirloom jewelry for future generations of our family and our story will get to live on.

These custom engagement rings are amazing. They are seriously the most beautiful thing I own and I am constantly in awe of them. They're big and beautiful and flashy and I love love love how badass they are.”

Moonrising

Custom Wedding Ring in 18k eco-gold/diamond

“My husband proposed with a prong-set diamond solitaire engagement ring from the New York diamond district, and though I said yes, it just wasn’t my style.

After some design ideas, WEND Jewelry created this custom wedding ring for me using my diamond. It is thick in the front, and less-so in the back, making it really comfortable to wear.

The style, which reminds me of a moon rising, is still fresh and eye catching and draws frequent compliments. I love the bezel set diamond and that it looks like a ring stack when it is on my finger.

There is a secret little nub detail on the back of the ring which is fun and unique, and helps me keep the ring in just the right place.

The pounded out details on the band shows off that it is handmade and organic, which I adore. It is incredibly comfortable to wear.”

“Appreciating nature is a core value we both share, and we wanted our rings to reflect this aspect of our partnership. We were able to create a nature scene in our rings that reminds us of the adventures we've enjoyed together. 

His ring represents a lake with a forest behind, and mine reflects the rest of that scene – the mountains above that forest, and the sky showing its stars.

I really enjoy having a visual representation of our partnership and bond together, especially since we were able to have custom wedding bands unique to us.”

Then Came You

“Our rings were designed by someone who knows us and knows us very well. They’re infused with the spirit of their creator who we deeply admire. And knowing that they were made especially for us and no one else only adds to their preciousness.

It means a lot to know that an awe and respect for nature is at the heart of WEND Jewelry. There’s really nothing more important.

These custom wedding rings make me feel grounded and grateful and continually astounded that I found my true love. Sometimes I wonder if my sweetie is looking at his ring when I’m looking at mine and feeling that same burst of joy.

My custom ring stack feels exquisite. So smooth and an absolute perfect fit. Handmade, ethically-sourced custom jewelry inspired by love!”

Ponderosa Pine

Custom wedding bands in 18k eco-gold/diamond

“The custom jewelry Wendy has made for me in the past always has a deeply magical quality to it. Literally. Her spirit, enthusiasm and gentle nature are molten into her work with love.

When my husband proposed to me, we were on a hike and he wrapped a ponderosa pine needle around my finger. If I could, I would've worn that forever. Right away it was clear, we want these as our rings and we knew exactly who would be making these for us.

I approached Wendy knowing it could be tricky to replicate the now drying needle. She tenderly took it with her, excited to take on the challenge.

The whole process was special. Meeting with her for fittings, the way she handled everything with so much care and attention, and of course, the final product. She masterfully recreated the wrapped needle, complete with the little stub and all.

My heart sings just thinking about that time and I'm so grateful she was able to make this happen for us.

These custom wedding bands are perfect. Even the little box they came in. It's all done with so much love and care. The crafting of these rings was a ceremony in and of itself. We're so grateful.”

Baja

Custom wedding ring
14K Eco-Yellow Gold+Eco-White Gold/ Diamonds

"This ring was designed with Baja in mind - an incredible pre-wedding trip with my husband. We kayaked in the Sea of Cortez close to rock walls that had black, golden, and gray tones. We are travelers and outdoorsy people, and living my life my way is what this ring means to me.

I feel grounded when I pay attention to it... I think of that rock formation, our wedding, and beauty with age.

It was meaningful to design it with a talented custom jeweler who cared about my story, and really heard what I wanted."

Pow!

Two custom wedding rings

“Our rings are strong and solid, and fit into each other like a puzzle. The “male” and “female” are reversed, in a modern take on gender roles in marriage.

Having a chance to design our custom rings with WEND allowed us to share what the bond of marriage means. It was amazing how Wendy was able to reflect what we said in the design of our rings.

Taken

Custom wedding rings in 14K Eco-White Gold, Arizona Amethyst, Diamond

“Having never imagined I would get married, these rings symbolize the incredible love I have for this woman in my life and how dedicated I am to her.

There is no mistaking a ring on the left ring finger. It is a public expression of dedication to another person. I feel claimed. Marked. Loved. Taken. It impresses me that I enjoy feeling this way.  

We are a same sex couple. It was difficult for my mother to come to terms with my sexuality, but she came to love that I was loved and in a loving relationship. We used a diamond from a ring that she associated with my brother who was killed when he was 26 years old. She wore that ring every single day of her life, and when she became terminally ill she gave it to me and called it ‘Doug's Ring.’

The center diamond from that ring is now in my custom wedding ring. It carries both my mom and my brother within it and is precious to me. My favorite gemstone is the amethyst, and it is my wife’s grandma’s birthstone. They had a very special bond, and the stone connects us all together.

I don't like flashy, fancy, or complicated rings. My custom wedding band is wide and embellished with different textures. The stones are set in the ring, they don't stand up above the ring at risk of being damaged or lost. The ring is made of white gold - it is heavy and feels like a substantial piece of art on my hand. It feels amazing on.”

Histoire

Custom Ring in Eco-Sterling Silver/14K Yellow Gold

"When I was born, my grandfather gave me a baby bracelet. I could only wear for a very short time, since I grew out of it quickly. As an adult, I was afraid I was going to lose this piece of jewelry, simply because I had outgrown it.

WEND Jewelry remade the bracelet into a thick comfortable custom band ring, which I wear daily.

This custom ring holds a deep personal history, from my earliest childhood and reminds me of where I came from in context of my family history. 

I feel like I can remember my place in the world as a child, which is comforting. I’m extremely lucky to have this piece of custom jewelry."

Carpe Damn Diem

Custom wedding bands + custom engagement ring

“It’s difficult to put into words how much these custom wedding rings mean to us. Part of it is that we each went through some challenging times before we found each other.

The rings are a constant reminder of how remarkable it is to find your true life partner and build a new, wonderful life.

I loved everything about how the rings came together. I didn’t have a clear idea what I wanted for the custom engagement ring, but WEND Jewelry made it so easy.

Your idea of having several stones to represent our blended family was perfect. And I loved that we were able to get it done in secret so that this could be a surprise. You even gave me a German prompt (since she’s German) for the proposal on the ring case. The whole thing just makes me smile.”

“WEND took an idea I had and created something more unique and beautiful than I'd imagined.

I absolutely adore my custom wedding ring. Not only do I get compliments on it all the time but when I catch glimpses of this statement piece I think, yes.

This is exactly what I needed, and it completes how I feel about my commitment and love for my partner.”

“Several friends commissioned this showstopper of a custom necklace for me! I wear it daily because it is so comfortable, and the gorgeous moonstone goes with everything!

As it moves, it takes on other colors. The glow of the 18K gold setting and chain make it look like something a bohemian princess would wear.

It hangs beautifully on the neck and the clasp makes it easy to take on and off. It feels really secure and the chain isn't fragile.”

Rays

Custom earrings

“Wendy made the most stunning and meaningful earrings I own. It is one of my favorite pairs I wear. 

She used the small slice of gold from my husband's ring when it was sized down to create this effect. I view it as a radiant ray of sunshine and hope.

Sometimes the gold slice is a bird or a wish, depending on the day. I wear them facing in when I feel the need for inner strength. I wear the rays facing out when I feel more confident and fearless in my grounded self.”

Meridian

18K Yellow Gold/ Aquamarine/Alexandrite/Sapphire/Opal Custom Necklace

“For our 10th wedding anniversary, my husband worked with WEND to create this custom birthstone necklace with the gemstones of our family. It is deeply meaningful to me, since it tells our story.

This is my favorite piece of jewelry I own. It dresses up to go out, dresses down with a white t-shirt and jeans, and layers beautifully with other necklaces.

It is comfortable to sleep and exercise in-- so I find that I wear it days on end. I get compliments on it all the time.”

Trinity

Custom Necklace with 1” diameter pendant

“I have never had the opportunity to design a piece of custom jewelry, and this piece was a big one to start with. My mother had recently passed away and I wanted to do something big, to remember her in my own way.

This custom necklace brings together three generations of women. We used the gold and diamonds that I inherited or received from my mother and grandmother, but which I was not wearing. They weren't the "cool" kind of vintage jewelry and it actually stressed me out to have those pieces sitting around.

It was emotional to say goodbye to the pieces but I now have something special, that I LOVE! The necklace makes me feel powerful, and it reminds me of my mother and grandmother every time I wear it.”

Harbinger

Sterling Silver/ raw pearls custom necklace and custom earrings

“On our first official date, we dined at an oyster bar. To our wonderment, one of the oysters contained a series of pearls. Even the staff at the restaurant was surprised with people coming out from the kitchen to see it.

Right away, the idea came to me that 'Wendy could make something cool out of these" since I had seen her custom jewelry before. I knew with the luck of the pearls there would be a next time -- and there was.

For me, [Wendy was the only] person I would consider to make something out of these pearls. I didn't want a traditional looking piece, I wanted something stylish, but also unique and artistic that did not lose the roughness and rawness of pearls straight out of an oyster.

These pieces combine the elegance of design with the essence of the raw pearls to make jewelry as unique as the experience we had of first discovering them.”

Sanguine

Sterling Silver/Watermelon Tourmaline Custom bracelet

“For our 25th wedding anniversary, my husband had WEND create this custom bracelet for me.

Symbolically, the stone is a Tourmaline, which is the birthstone for the month of our marriage. The stone is surrounded by 25 silver spheres, representing our long, loving marriage and life partnership.

When I wear it, I am reminded of the love we have for one another and the bond reinforced by our years of shared experiences. It is a beautiful piece of custom jewelry I will always treasure.”
