One of my jewelers has developed a passion for taking videos with his iPhone.  Here I am looking dubious about it.

I’m wearing the hat gorgeous blogger Jennine got for me at Tar-Jay. I think it’s a lot better than this chicken hat that I tried on while out on the town with another gorgeous blogger, ENC of Observationmode.

I didn't buy this.

My jeweler also shot a little video of a project I’m working on for a third gorgeous blogger, Deja Pseu (also known as Susan).  Susan asked for her engagement ring to be redesigned in a style inspired by my Siobhan perma-stacked stacking rings. This is the wax model of the five bands we’re creating for Susan. The original design has 10 bands, but those are very skinny. This time I needed a wide center band for Susan’s diamonds.

Those are Susan’s actual stones in the middle of the model.

I love to redesign old jewelry. I created these three stacking rings for ENC from one old-fashioned cocktail ring that she never wore. If you have jewelry that’s not your style, but to which you have an emotional attachment because of the giver, let me create a new design for you! Holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com.

    OK, do you really think it’s alright to tease us with 12 seconds and a squeak of your voice? :-) The ring model is fascinating. Love seeing stuff like that. Susan must be thrilled to bits. And I think the Enc rings are some of the most gorgeous jewels you’ve made. So perfect for her…

  7. S says:

    hey
    your voice is as sweet as you look, but I thought it would have been more like your rapier wit! It is surprising.
    Loved it :)
    And funnily enough the anti spam word required is soprano!
    Lots of best wishes!

  8. I like the chicken hat. . . . And what fantastic reimaginings of jewelry!

  9. You are so talented! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I will be back at yours definitely!

  10. stacy says:

    OK, many things to say…
    First, your interview is great — 6 seconds of WendyB!
    You should do more. Second, the ring is HUGE and amazing. Lucky girl. Third, what a fantastic thought — refashioning jewelry that we are not necessarily in love with because it was a gift, or whatever. I know you could do amazing things and I bet most people don’t even think of doing that.

    what? WHAT? You didn’t buy the chicken hat! If anybody could rock it, it’d be you. you have a ridiculously lovable giggle (that sound really creepy, sorry)

  12. Miss Janey says:

    MIss J LOVES MIss Pseu’s redesigned rings. Lovely work, WendyB.

  16. sara says:

    maybe it’s just me but i LOVE that chicken hat! :D

    i am coveting a hunking cameo cocktail ring. i found a designer who made one but she only worked on an enquiry basis and she never responded to my query!!

  17. tris1978ton says:

    Hehe. That is a cute chicken (is it chicken?) hat.

  18. Winnie says:

    You look adorable in the video and you SOMEHOW make that chicken hat work. Hahaha!

  19. KD says:

    I love the hat! And that is definitely going to be the coolest engagement ring EVER.

  20. alixrose says:

    Love the sneak peek, am so nosey so this totally feeds my curiousity. How lovely of Jenine to get you a hat and it looks good!

  21. TheShoeGirl says:

    Those stones are reDONK. haha
    Can I just say that you are really the cutest. If I didn’t meet you I wouldn’t believe that it would be possible for you to be even cuter in person… but in fact, you ARE. <3

  22. These pictures of you in hats could only be topped by pictures of me in a B52 wig! ;)

    And what do you say to someone in a chicken hat? Pluck you!

  23. marian says:

    What a beautiful modern setting!

  30. enc says:

    I love the way you re-styled Susan’s ring. That’s a modern and clean look she will be able to wear with joy and pride for years to come. Those are beautiful stones, too!

    (I love my stacking rings, too. What a great job you did recycling my grandmother’s older stones from a wacky ’60s cocktail ring into something I can actually use! Plus, the story I have to tell now is brilliant. I’ve got my grandmother’s heirloom stones in rings designed by my good friend.)

  31. You look TOO GORGEOUS and cute in the hat! Love the ring too xxx

  32. hanako66 says:

    i have my grandmother’s ring that i’ve been wanting to incorporate into something new with my stone and maybe a new stone next year…it would be so fun if you could do it!
