Eek! Is there yet another Wendy Brandes prowling around? I assure you I have nothing to do with this.
Separately, it’s Thursday, yet there’s no Thursday Book Club. I’ve decided I won’t do the book club every Thursday, just on occasional Thursdays. I’m reading a lot of books simultaneously, and I’d rather take my time and give each queen her due. I assure you, the next one is going to be about a kick-ass royal lady AND I’ve designed an amazing piece of jewelry in her honor. Stay tuned!
UPDATED TO ADD: Well, that first link is no longer working (the thread has been removed) and I’ve been accused of spam again. That thread on the “Hypebeast” forum had included a photo of a gold belt designed by “Wendy Brandes Jewelry of London.” I posted back identifying myself as Wendy Brandes Jewelry of New York and asking for more info on this London gal. Instead of information, I got this email. WHAT!THE!FUCK! They thoughtfully attached my message at the bottom so you can see the “spam” I am allegedly guilty of sending.

Is there a Wendy Brandes Jewelry in London? Wendy Brandes Jewelry in New York wants to know. And who would waste that much gold on a belt, even as a publicity stunt? 😮
