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.

East meets West in this melting pot collection from jetset designer Wendy Mink. Influenced by her love of history and travel, this New Yorker marries a city-chic vibe with ancient jewelry-making techniques like hammering, molding and wiring. You’ll love this rough-around-the-edges selection, like in these crystal drop earrings, which has glass crystals dangling off of a black silk base. And the multi-colored bib necklace showcases champagne quartz, citrine, hessonite and lemon quartz drops in a stunning web formation.
Baubles to brighten winter’s wardrobe. Colorful bead necklaces tied with a silk bow add cheer to a neutral sweater, a gold cuff with punched lattice makes a pretty (and tough) bit of arm candy, and the tigers-eye charm bracelet threaded with ribbon would look particularly pretty against a crisp white shirt.
