I was delighted to be mentioned in an article in Crain’s New York last month. Surprised too, because I found out only after a charming customer called to order the necklace that was featured. I think the customer was surprised to be talking directly to a surprised designer. I hope his gorgeous wife was surprised by the gift, because if she wasn’t, she would be the only person not surprised in this scenario.
Crain’s was right. The petite Mignonette is a “real steal” compared to most of my gold and gemstone pieces; I recently explained the size and weight of my pieces as well as the labor that goes into setting them. The Mignonette is the kind of piece I occasionally create as an alternative to my usual look; it’s perfect for someone who needs a discreet piece of jewelry for everyday wear. The flower is only 3/8″ wide. You can compare that to something like the Boleyn Necklace, which is 2″ long. Obviously the little one is the steal!
I happen to be out of Mignonettes right now, but if you want to order one, email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, and I’ll have it for you in about two weeks.
Remember that I have a lot of other items for under $500. You can sort the pieces on my site by price; the majority of the under-$500 items are in the silver collection.
UPDATED TO ADD: Thanks to gorgeous bloggers Sarah-Rose and Craig for mentioning me today. Glad they like the jewelry and the swearing.
