Wendy Brandes is an award-winning narrative and visual artist who is inspired by powerful women to create miniature works of art. Her materials: precious metal, gems and a wicked sense of humor. Wendy -- who began her career as a business-news journalist at the Wall Street Journal and CNN -- combines her story-telling powers, knowledge of history, and vivacious and colorful aesthetic to create unforgettable jewelry.
Wendy works with the most talented artisans in New York to create her intricately detailed designs, finishing with her signature antiqued patina that begs to be touched and worn.
Many of the designs come to life: A multi-layered tale unfolds as pendants and rings reveal secret compartments, hidden figures and unexpected gems. Other creations whistle, or playfully twist and turn into new shapes. All her jewelry is rich in 18k gold or platinum, with stones that are custom-cut to enable the most precise craftsmanship possible.
