It's that time again...Mother's Day is upon us again, which means time for our huge sample sale next weekend in the boutique. It's not all about samples though, we just got some INCREDIBLE vintage pieces into the boutique that we are pretty sure you will love, how about these sweet 'mother' pieces above, such great prices too, just $18 for the pin and $60 for the pendant!
This is such a great statement bracelet for summer! 1960's Egyptian revival, light and fun to layer, $110.
Check out these gorgeous stackable stretch bracelets, we just started seeing a few of these about and are building up a sweet collection, they are so great layered with other bracelets and the very cool thing is that they do not jangle about, nice! ranging from $40-90.
More fabulous layering bangles, the top wide one here is Victorian and beautifully carved with flowers ($200), the lower is a lovely thin detailed bangle with a snake, flowers, bee....cute! ($90)
...and for silver lovers this buckle cuff is perfect, this is not sterling and a great price at $90, make sure you drop by to view our new silver case also as these pieces are really very special and proving very popular!
Last of the bangles for this week, lovely Victorian pieces, two buckle bangles, (adjustable too, set of x2 is $130) and an ornate layering bangle too ($80), all great for small wristed ladies.
We don't think this little buckle ring will last long in the store, it is too darn cute! $60.
Gorgeous Victorian necklace, ornate but lightweight...beautiful, $200.
If any of these vintage stunners appeal please call Megan in the boutique on 212 260 5298 and she can help you out with details, we will be posting a sale reminder next week with some sneak peeks at the sale items, we hope you can join us for the fun from the 6-8th of May.

It's an age old issue. Just what to buy for a gift, you think you have it right but maybe you are just a little...well, off. We have plenty of male shoppers, many of these men know exactly what to buy for their loved one but some just need a little help, same with friends looking for birthday gifts, daughters looking for their mothers....and the list goes on.
Well to combat this issue, Megan our store manager, created a Wish List. You can drop by, call or email with your favorite selections and Megan will note them down, you don't need to be specific, maybe just your favorite colors, stones or style. It's a great idea if you know your partner, husband, boyfriend, sister etc is struggling with a perfect gift for you. With Mother's Day coming up it's a great opportunity to send your children into the store to choose something wonderful for you, Megan can be reached on 212 260 5298 or email her on: store@wendyminkjewelry.
Speaking of Mother's Day here are some gift ideas from the web and boutique...make sure you leave enough time to ship!

If you are an 'experienced' customer with us you will already know that every piece of WMJ is handmade...but maybe if you are a new customer that might be news to you! well it's true, if you are ever wondering if we have something in stock...basically we don't! if you order something it will be made especially for you. The only exceptions to this are the filigree pieces and hammered hoops which come to us all the way from Peru and courtesy of highly skilled artisans who have worked with Wendy on designs for many years. These shots above were taken on our production table, a place of concentration, quite a bit of laughter and huge doses of talent....if you have some WMJ jewelry then it was made right here at this table....and from this table it does a little walk over to the shipping table which is the only two places it 'lives' before it becomes yours. Nice right?
This past week Wendy did a rather amazing job of merchandising our vintage silver, seems silver is proving pretty popular right now and it looks fabulous all together, here are some of our silver picks from the case, all of these pieces are available and queries can be made by calling Megan on 212 260 5298 or emailing her on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plus....a few fish necklaces which we must re-stock as they are very popular, must have something to do with summer coming, please let us know if any interest you, Megan has all the fishy details....
