Eilene Zimmerman interviewed me about the jewelry biz for the latest issue of Crain’s New York Business. You can read the story here and leave Eilene a nice comment. The delightful Buck Ennis took my picture for the article. I’m not very comfortable in front of the camera unless I’m doing the WendyB pose, so this artistic photo is a tribute to his mad skillz.
To get this picture, I had to slither between a wall and a glass table, then crouch down while remaining upright. I took off my shoes to make it possible. Here’s how it looked behind the scenes.
I have a whole new appreciation for professional models after this experience. Holding a pose ain’t easy!
But what a great picture!
Thanks! The photographer was very creative.
Work those calf muscles, Wendy! No pain no gain yeah!
That is a pretty awesome photo, though. With your HuffPo posts and interviews as of late, are you making a return to journalism in some way?
Making sure I don’t get too rusty!
As the Boy Scouts always say, Be Prepared. 😉
Posing is so not easy, what a great shot they got.
Ruth Johnston says

It sucks, doesn’t it? I was always awful at those kind of shoots, could never “smile with my eyes!” But your shot is fantastic, great composition and he captured your gorgeous smile.
I *LOVE* your designs, so a totally custom wedding ring from you would be fantastic. Let me talk it over with Hubby! =D It would be an absolutely treasured item in my jewelry box! Will be in touch.

Wow who knew it took so much effort. . especially when you’re smiling so brightly!
I have a whole new appreciation for photography magic! Stunning photo, less-than-glam behind the scenes shot. You do look beautiful in both pics though–it’s the signature WendyB smile. 🙂
Kate Seward says
Awesome picture! Elegant yet original.
It’s an awesome photo and I love how you included the behind the scenes shot, who knew the glass table was so low in real life?

LOL. I hadn’t read it. Thanks for sharing! Reading it now.
You are so hitting the big time, Wendy! You look amazing (duh, of course you do!).
That pic is awesome!! So creative.
You look like a pro to me! What an absolutely gorgeous photo!
Vegetable Assassin says
I love the pics! You look ravishing as always. And of course you couldn’t do the Wendy B. traditional pose or you’d have to charge Crain’s a copyright fee, no? 🙂
I also have a whole new appreciation for models, wow that is incredible. you look amazing!!!
OMG, when I lived in Chicago I was obsessed with Crain’s! (They have one there too). It was a dream of mine to some day be in it. Congratulations, Wendy!
