Hi I’m Megan Haney. I am the artist behind the jewelry brand Wander & Rain which represents Copper Plated Resin Jewelry with a strong Forest Fantasy theme.
My Patreon is here to directly support design development to help me create more than jewelry.

W&R started with me knowing that the only way I could reasonably pursue art is if I was making money as I went. I chose to get serious about some very sciency processes but took the easiest route by using them to make jewelry. I just figured any process that had a major learning curve would probably be easier and more cost effective if I kept it small scale. I am entirely self-taught in my processes relying on nothing but written recipes and info on the back of boxes. I have to just go for it and evaluate what made it crash and burn so that next time there can be less crashing and burning.

Most of what you will see here will be glimpses of the unique processes behind Wander & Rain and some of the work and crafts that go into running a little jewelry business.
Jewelry is a fantastic thing to make and does well at the markets and fairs I attend but I don’t want to be so dependent on it for income.

What I really want is to use the processes I have become so familiar with to delve deeper into fantasy curios, small sculptures, and outlandish wearable items.
After a couple of months of planning and designing I have started making magic mirrors. I feel so proud of what I have created but it pains me a little to think of how much more I could do with an idea like that if I didn’t absolutely have to be cranking out jewelry to support my ambitions.

So by being my patron you are easing some of my work load and directly supporting my journey into a new realm of possibilities for my techniques!
