When you think of us....








Hello-

We'd love your feedback and you might just receive a pair of these fabulous very Wendy Mink chandeliers!

Recently we've been passing around an idea in the studio. What is essentially 'Wendy Mink' about a Wendy Mink style? sounds a bit odd but it's an essential question we try and answer every now and then as we make plans for future collections, boutique additions, web changes etc....when we discussed it here in the studio in the past week we came up with all sorts of ideas about what we all thought constituted classic Wendy Mink-ness; color-matching, hand-crafted quality, unique stones, classic bead knotting, blending old and new?....the list goes on. The question caused a debate of sorts as we tried to really hone in on what it is Wendy does 'best'.




When we merchandise new styles online and in the store it's always interesting to see what gets snapped up first, we have an extensive mailing list which seems to cover every possible style of ladies, so popular pieces are cast over quite a broad spectrum. We can sell a 'drop on a chain' (often causing Wendy to wilt a little) over and over, but then we can also sell a very adventurous chunky necklace almost as many times over.
Finding what YOU love to see (and buy of course!) in collections is part of the enormous retail puzzle, we would love to know right here on this blog what keeps you coming back. What's 'essential' to you about Wendy Mink?


We value your comments and because a little love goes a long way we will choose a lucky lady from comments below to receive a pair of the beautiful clusters above.
We very much look forward to hearing what is essential WMJ to YOU.

  1. Admittedly, I've only recently been introduced to your line, but one of the first words that came to mind to describe Wendy Mink Jewelry was "juxtaposition." Pieces are ethnic and modern; organic and refined; vintage and undeniably "now." It's the marriage of these seemingly contrasting qualities that make her work so appealing.

  2. There's so much I can say about Wendy Mink. Wendy Mink is sophisticated and chic regardless of being a classic or trendy design. I also think of color because Wendy Mink offers so many beautiful pieces. I find myself "wowed" all the time. There are so many unique pieces. The quality and craftsmanship is excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way for you to help you customize pieces. I find myself choosing a piece of Wendy Mink jewelery, then planning my outfit around it!

  3. When I think of Wendy Mink jewelry "statement piece" comes to mind. While there are always subtler and more classic options to choose from, I'm drawn to the "Wow". The WM pieces I covet always have a sense of movement, bold color and mystery. They stand out and entice me to take a closer look at exactly how, and of what, they are constructed. The third chandelier earring shown above has moved to the top of my wish list. I am truly in love.

  5. To me anything that catches my eye is essential Wendy Mink. The use of color, shape, and texture is what sets Wendy Mink apart from the rest as well as the amazing Amy who makes everything look so beautiful. When I wear my pieces I feel transformed and always beautiful. The pieces I love the most always are a mix of color that POP!

  6. Wendy Mink is groundbreaking, in the sense that they offer something for everyone, no matter what your personal style is. All of my WM pieces are similar (extra-large gold earrings and statement pieces), but I've often found myself considering dainty, delicate pieces that I never thought I'd own, just cause they were so beautiful. The collections really encourage people to branch out of their jewelry comfort zone and try something new.
    In a word, Wendy Mink Jewelry is universally flattering!

  10. i love that wendy mink pieces give the wearer a certain je ne sais quoi. It might be best described as that envious glow you see on a friend who's just vacationed at exotic locales and is proudly wearing the baubles she acquired during said (much-needed) vacay. One suggestion for your site -- it would be awesome to be able to see more of your pieces on ears/necks/fingers to get a more visual sense of the sizing. GILT Group does an awesome job of this! LOVE Wendy Mink and those earrings are fabulous! They are like glamazon fishing lures!

  12. Ms. Mink seems to believe that clothing acts as an accessory to jewelry, rather than being the focal point of an outfit...an aggressive, avant-garde approach that is truly refreshing. Yet, my favorite aspect of the brand is that all her pieces, as diverse as they appear, pay homage to nature. From her extensive use of natural, ruggedly-hewn stones in chunky bead and droplet forms, to the above-pictured chandelier earrings reminiscent of the folded tails of female/ male peacocks, her designs accommodate all tastes, be they demure or loud, thereby enabling customers to experiment and develop their own niches within the brand.

  15. Wendy Mink Jewelry is essential to me because the pieces are made from high quality materials and are handcrafted yet durable. I personally love the stone pieces right now, especially turquoise/aqua for summer. And the gold vermeil work is lovely.

  18. Wendy Mink Jewelry is created by a women who is an eclectically traditional futurist designer with great taste and real heart! That's as good as it gets and is why WMJ is as good as it gets. Thanks Wendy!

  19. I love that the jewelry always has a bold element to it and that each piece is not afraid to be a "statement" piece. You can wear one WMJ piece and it's all the accessorizing you need. Nothing is overly dramatic or over-the-top, however; each item manages to be classic and elegant. They make you feel like a million bucks when you wear them.

  20. I love the idea that a piece of jewelry can really complete a look and dramatically enhance even a boring, everyday outfit. For me, Wendy's pieces take my "look" to another level. You can dress them up, play them down...I love color and bold, unique pieces and Wendy's got it all.
