A Real-ly Simple Ask....& Giveaway!

Hello everyone,

How's your week going? turkey buying? we sense some holiday shopping in the air, many of our website orders (and in the boutique) are now 'gifts for others' which is great, what is even better is that Cerena our store manager created a wonderful nook of beautiful gift-wrapping materials, here she will create a gorgeous little piece of 'art', all ready for you to pop into the hands of your mother in law or sister...or girlfriend...anyway, the point is you won't have to do a single thing once it's chosen! Cerena will include a couple of pictures of what she's got cooking here in the next store blog later this week.

We had a fairly grand start to the week with this Cluster Charm Bracelet featured in the chunky December issue of Real Simple, this magazine we often mention because it's a bit of a favorite round the studio, this issue doesn't disappoint either! This week we would like to offer you a bracelet of a different kind as giveaway!

Pictured above is the Gold Resin bracelet from our Winter Collection, it's simple, wearable and perhaps a great gift for these reasons? We would like to give one of these bracelets away to one lucky reader, here's how to enter!

First you must be a follower of this blog
Secondly you must leave us your email address
Thirdly we would love you to comment on what you would like to see on this blog,
do you just love pictures of new or upcoming jewelry? would you like more 'studio life'?
would you like more of a sneak peek into Wendy's design world?

Just let us know in a brief comment below and we will *randomly* choose a winner.

We hope you will spread the word about this giveaway and very much value your comments as we endeavor to bring you an informative, fun and newsy blog that you really want to check in with each week...don't forget to mention if you tweet or blog about this giveaway as we will give you another entry!

Don't forget about this week's mid-week must have, such a great deal for $50!
We look forward to reading your comments below and choosing a winner, enjoy! (here's a few faves on the website right now that we think make very sweet gifts!)



  1. thanks for the opportunity.

    love the bracelet! i'm a follower. i'd love to see new pieces, sale items and giveaways. i also enjoy seeing your items featured in magazines.

  2. What a great giveaway! The bracelet is gorgeous. I'd love to see the latest pieces from the collection and some behind the scenes stuff!

  3. I'm not usually a "charm bracelet" girl, but I find that top bracelet really beautiful. The gray stones are gorgeous and winter-y...I LOVE that Gold Resin bracelet. I would flaunt it if I was wearing it.

  4. I love the first bracelet! I'd like to see new pieces in progress & of course, more giveaways of stunning jewelry ;) It might also be interesting to see you guys at work: do you have inspiration boards, etc.? Also, another idea might be to show different outfits/color combinations that would work with particular pieces of jewelry.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  5. Happy Wednesday!
    -Yes, I am a follower-check!!
    - And I would love to see more of the studio...where all the magic happens and I would also appreciate seeing more pics of peeps in WMJ!!! Two very small requests-check!!!!

    I would love to make someone's Holi-Day with that beautiful bracelet, too!

  6. Love this blog! Been a Wendy Mink fan since my then boyfriend (now husband) bought me a bunch of WM earrings when I first got my ears pierced in college, a little late in life :)

    I'd really like to see more suggested pairings on the blog, it always helps to hear from the designer which rings she envisions bringing which bracelets to life etc.

    (email avigee at gmail dot com).

  7. This is a great way to learn more about your site...and to include a giveaway, genius.

    Many readers want to see the daily happenings of someone else's life. I guess that's why American's are so hooked on "reality television" (although, most of that can't be real, right?)

    Maybe do a customer highlight. Photograph someone wearing her favorite piece of WMJ. And do a little Q and A with her as if she were a celebrity.


  8. Awesome giveaway - I love that bracelet!!!

    I personally love to read about new/upcoming jewelry and also the background of the design process.

  9. Thanks for the giveaway

    I would love to see more of the studio work. I really enjoyed one of the blog entries where you guys talked about the process to make beaded hoop earrings. Hearing about Wendy’s design inspirations would be great too. Maybe you can also feature some of Wendy’s earlier pieces? I’m always curious about some of her past designs.


  10. I love seeing all the new designs. Keep up the good work!

  11. love the bracelet!
    i agree with wanting to see more of the "behind the scenes" stuff! people like feeling connected with the ones runnin' the show! ;)


  12. Bracelet is gorgeous! I live in Boston and make a point of coming to see your boutique every time I am in NYC. I would love to see more items on your website that you have in your boutique! Maybe you could showcase a few pieces each week from your studio/boutique! :)

    And would enjoy the studio life very much as well.
    Thank you. I love your work and beautifull jewelry.

  15. Hi! I am a blog follower. I think you should put a variety of different types of posts in the blog. Sometimes photos, sometimes behind the scenes production stuff, sometimes talk about where you get your ideas...keep it lively!

    Btw, the giveaway bracelet is gorgeous! :-)

  17. Is this open for international readers too? :D
    I'd love to win this! I prefer bangles than bracelets usually but this one is very very gorgeous! So if it is, please count me in!

    I am a GFC follower. I'd personally love to see some behind the scenes posts and what the inspirations of the crafts people are for these gorgeous jewelries. ^_^

  18. i think the blog does a great job so far - i would like to see more of a gift guide type post for the holidays, though. looking for something for my kooky aunt as well as my classic mom. also it would be nice to put a face and personality to miss wendy herself as well as seeing how the pieces are handmade. xx
