WEND Jewelry is a wedding jeweler in Seattle, California, that offers entirely handmade, gender-neutral products made from sustainably sourced materials. Inspired by nature and infused with each wearer's story, every WEND piece reflects the rugged nature of life. In addition, the team uses hand-carved textures made from recycled, fairminded, and fair-trade materials or even from our clients' unused jewelry.

WEND Jewelry specializes in re-purposing gold and gemstones to create modern heirlooms infused with history! We start by learning about the background of any item to be re-purposed and a couple's story before designing a new piece. After removing any gemstones, we isolate, weigh, and test the purity of the metal to be recast. We then sketch designs for the client, and after they choose their favorite, we carve a wax model and cast a new heirloom. Some clients like to join the casting process, watching their unused jewelry transform into something that genuinely honors their journey. Each cast piece is then hand-worked to perfect and customize its appearance further.

WEND's storefront studio, school, and gallery in West Seattle allow people to connect more deeply with our mission. Local lichen, wood, fungi, and moss surround our collection pieces in natural displays. WEND also offers art and craft classes at our Ring Bar, and our gallery, known as WENDSpace, represents local artists and hosts monthly art Walks
