Based in NYC, Wendy Mink designs jewelry influenced by her love of history and her far-flung travels — think Victorian drama fused with Indian flair, by way of Tibet. Uptown, downtown; high, low; East, West: Mink's collection of meandering, organic shapes, drenched in gold vermeil and semi-precious stones, represents the perfect culture clash. A team of Tibetan artisans uses ancient techniques such as hammering, molding, and wire-wrapping to handcraft all of Mink’s turquoise rings, lapis lazuli and blue calcite drop earrings, labradorite necklaces and other designs. Synthetic resin adds plenty of chic, sharp shocks of color to Wendy Mink’s gold and silver wares.
