Forester Ring



This ring displays a beautiful landscape stamped on a dainty semi-circle. This unique mountain ring comes packaged in a hand-stamped box and is the perfect gift for naturalists. It is available in jeweler's brass or sterling silver.

For me this sunset ring invites a rush of the happiest feelings; the breeze coming through your tent in the morning, the beautiful prints you found while hiking, the smell of fire, the sound of the birds, the sway of the trees while you watch the stars. This style is one of my favorites because no matter where I am, my outdoor jewelry brings a little of that happy place to my day. This camping ring is simple but unique and would make a great gift for any nature lover or to add to your own collection.

This ring begins as a sheet of brass or sterling that is cut into a semi-circular disc in my studio. Next the mountain and trees are stamped and a band is soldered. Finally this ring receives a patina and is polished to a reflective shine.

Jeweler's brass is a quality alternative to the much more expensive gold that it imitates. You can also upgrade your ring to sterling silver for a small charge. This piece is polished up to a shiny finish before you receive it but over time tarnishing will occur. A quick wipe with a polishing pad is all you need to bring life back to your ware but if you are in a bind simply submerge it in a squirt of ketchup and buff off. You can add a polishing pad to your order under the "Add-On" Tab.

This simple nature ring is available in a few pre-made sizes. Because these were created in a larger batch they are discounted from the regular price and are ready to ship. If you would prefer a custom size or sterling silver please allow up to 3 weeks for your ring to be created.

Want a custom ring but need it sooner? An inexpensive rush order option can be purchased through the "Add On" tab.

As mentioned above, this ring is the perfect daily accessory. It is rugged and makes a statement. My personal favorite way to wear my explore ring is to stack some tiny bands below it or mix and match with other nature inspired rings. It makes me feel adventurous and tranquil.

Care instructions

Your jewelry is finished with a water proof sealant before it ships. Over time the sealant may wear off and need additional polishing/resealing. Some ways to keep your jewelry looking sparkly and new include:

-Do not store your jewelry in a humid area such as a bathroom

-If you live in a humid climate consider storing your jewelry in an enclosed case, bag, or box to preserve the shine

-Avoid water, hand sanitizer, and chemicals as much as possible

-You can polish your jewelry easily with a polishing pad (available as an add-on) to make it look new again or if you are in a bind ketchup is commonly used. Just submerge your jewelry and buff off.

-A common home remedy to lacquer jewelry is clear nail polish

-You can always contact me

Sizing details

For sizing your fingers I definitely recommend consulting a local jeweler or purchasing a cheap ring sizer online. If you are unable to size your fingers as mentioned here are some other considerations:

The most common sizes I sell are
6 (slightly smaller than average)
7 (average)
8 (slightly larger than average)

If your fingers are very thin your size may run from 4-5
If your fingers are larger you may consider a 9-10
For men's sizing you can typically add two sizes.

You can also cut off the sticky part of a post-it note and wrap around your finger, marking where the ends meet. Measuring the post-it note in mm and converting (or messaging me) should give you a pretty accurate size.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Standard packaging for rings include a plastic capsule filled with styrofoam confetti in a hand-printed bubble mailer.

Standard packaging for necklaces include a hand stamped card-stock tag in a clear plastic protective sleeve that is shipped in a hand-printed bubble mailer.

Also available upon request (in your order notes) are hand stamped gift boxes.

For bridal parties or events feel free to message me about custom packaging for your order.

Will brass turn my fingers green?

There are many factors that affect metal such as hormones, sodium levels, and personal allergies. For that reason I can not confidently say that the brass will not turn your finger green. With that being said, it is more common that people have no reaction for the following reasons.

Brass does contain a small amount of nickel (which turns your fingers green). While I am heating the metal a lot of the nickel comes to the surface and is removed in the polishing phase. Additionally your jewelry is sealed with a water-proof wax that serves as a barrier from your skin and protects the shine of your piece.

If you are concerned about an allergy to brass you may consider sterling silver which very rarely causes a reaction.


We bought our wedding rings from Caitlin for our Zoom Hallowedding in 2020 after making the last minute-ish decision that a zoom wedding would give us that connection we needed. We ordered one of her amazing mystery boxes and got rings that were absolutely perfect for both of us. Between working in food service and moving, my ring got put into a (too) safe place and I was devastated. Luckily Caitlin happily made a replica for me and even threw in some spooky treats as an anniversary gift. She's thoughtful, kind, and didn't even make me feel a little guilty for losing the beautiful work of art she initially created for me. She's a wonderful artist and great to work with on custom orders. Me, my partner, and our own trash cat collective approve. 10/10 beans.

I ordered 3 rings (brass) - the mountain and trail time rings for me, which I wear together, and the rattle one for my daughter, who loves snakes. We LOVE them so much, and had such a great time opening the package, which came quickly and was full of surprises. I don't want to give the secret away ;-) - order from trashcatcollective and find out for yourself! Totally worth it, and I'm looking forward to ordering from them again! Bravissima!

I love, love, love every ring I e purchased from this amazing artist! There’s always an extra little surprise and delight that is just perfect. I will be ordering more and highly recommend shopping with this store!
