Tweet I’m always looking for music peeps who I think would look good in Wendy Brandes jewelry designs. Usually, I focus on female performers such as singer/songwriter Skylar Grey and rapper Gangsta Boo, but, last year, a Florida-based dude called Hi-Rez caught my eye (and ear).  I can’t recall what it was that first made […]

Tweet I love doing custom work for gorgeous clients. My policy is that if you can describe it and pay for it, I can make it! I did two custom necklaces recently. The first one was for a gentleman who wanted to get his entrepreneurial daughter a necklace that featured the name of her start-up […]

Tweet I enjoy redesigning my customers’ old, unloved jewelry. I’ve even redesigned earlier redesigns. For instance, I made a ring for my gorgeous sister, Terri Berry, in 2011. The stones originally came from my mother’s ruby-and-diamond cocktail ring. Before I was in the jewelry business, I took the cocktail ring to a local jeweler, who […]

Tweet Gorgeous singer Skylar Grey was interviewed on the music channel Fuse TV last week, and I was thrilled to see she had on the special double-ax necklace I made for her last summer! You can see it in this screen cap. (P.S. Her new chest tattoo says “Woodrat.”) Here’s the whole interview. I’ve written […]

Tweet Gorgeous client Serena (owner of my IDGAF necklace, among other pieces) recently contacted me with a special request. She wanted a pendant made in memory of her beloved dog, a bullmastiff named Daisy. Daisy died from lymphoma this March, aged seven. Serena emailed me: “We had Daisy since she was six weeks old. She […]

Tweet Gorgeous singer/songwriter Skylar Grey has a fun new video out for her cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” I’m always thrilled when Skylar releases something, but this video is extra-special because the gold crossed-ax necklace I custom-made for Skylar this summer is clearly visible at 3:25. Woot! Please feast your eyes on the above […]

Tweet There’s a story in today’s New York Times Thursday Styles section about “bespoke jewelry.” “Bespoke” is a fancy word for custom jewelry, the term that I prefer. I was especially interested in this paragraph. “So-called bespoke pieces (the term started in men’s wear but has spread, like ‘curate,’ to everything from bicycles to software) […]

Tweet Gorgeous singer Dina Rae is letting her fingers do the talking with the sterling-silver “D RAE” ring set that I custom-made for her. I’m looking forward to getting some pictures that include her fabulous face from her next photoshoot! Maybe the rings will make it into something like this sultry shot. If you don’t […]

Tweet Ta-da! I’m so excited to share this photo of gorgeous singer/songwriter Skylar Grey wearing the crossed-ax necklace I custom-made for her. The crossed axes are Skylar’s logo. You can see it on this sticker. I wrote at length about Skylar when I saw her perform at Le Poisson Rouge during her tour to promote […]

Tweet The first concert I ever went to was Journey. The show was at what was then called the Brendan Byrne Arena in New Jersey. I’m wondering if it was one of the Journey concerts I see listed for that venue for May 1983, which would have made me 15. Is that an advanced age for a […]
