I love to redesign old jewelry for customers and the mother of all redesign opportunities was literally handed to me in March. My gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, had to take off her engagement ring ahead of a minor medical procedure, only to find that it couldn’t be budged. The ring had to be cut off. BarbaraB […]

Gorgeous Sky Heavens has sung backup vocals for Eminem and Nicki Minaj, but I had never seen one of her solo performances until last night. She did an acoustic set of songs from her upcoming EP, Luz, at the Standard Hotel in New York City. She also treated us to a little bit of what […]

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 me […]

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 company […]

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 did […]

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 about […]

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 was […]

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 image […]

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) are […]
