In case you missed my excited tweets yesterday, Vogue Paris picked my Empress Wu dragon ring for its “le bijou du jour” website feature. I liked the way the story referred to me as “la créatrice new-yorkaise.”
I also liked what supermodel Christy Turlington wrote about my ring on Vogue’s Facebook page.
However, “a bit scary” is an understatement when it comes to Empress Wu. The 7th-century Chinese ruler who inspired my design was utterly terrifying! Read all about her in my two 2007 posts:
In other press news, National Jeweler recently ran this story on the American Jewelry Design Council’s New Talent Award contest, in which I was a runner-up. One of my entries for that contest was my Empress Wu dragon earring design.
Bad bitches like Wu are good for business!

FASHION TALES says
That’s wonderful! Definitely a pieces of art! Congrats! I love them! 🙂
Wow – I want someone to call me that! 🙂 What a terrific headline the mag has given you. That ring is really so stunning (in the truest sense – you look at it and then it’s hard to turn away for its intricacy and scariness!) It photographs beautifully. Must pick up a copy of PVogue to see it on paper.
It’s not in the book 🙁
That’s my next goal!
HOLY CRAP, CONGRATS, WENDY!!!!!!!!!!!!
