Alex Trapp is an award winning and published contemporary American Impressionist painter. As a longtime resident of Seattle, WA, Alex spends many of the wet months painting in his studio bringing to life memories of the seasons before. "I use plein air studies I create in the field to remind me of a time and place from the seasons before. I work to bring those feelings back to life in the studio in order to offer the viewer a visual poem."

During the dry season Alex can be found painting the landscape En Plein Air in the Northwest and beyond. "I paint anything that I find of interest, but mostly I'm inspired by nature. I appreciate the context of learning from it. The challenges that come with painting En Plein Air are complex, to say the least, but I like that. It's an endless love of learning."

As a self-taught artist, Alex looks to the history books, paintings, and writings of impressionist masters like, Edgar Payne, Sergei Bongart, and Claude Monet. "I'm influenced by a number of American, Russian, and French Impressionists. My personal intent in landscape painting is to stay true to the harmony of nature as I see it while at the same time, attempting to achieve a visual melody for the viewer to experience through design, light and color.

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.
