A big thank you goes out to Hannah Connorton who interviewed me for National Jeweler. The story was intended to be about silver, but Hannah kindly let me ramble on about my inspiration and aesthetic for both my gold signature line and my silver WENDYB by Wendy Brandes diffusion line. I like that she wrote, “Brandes has a fondness for movement, color and extreme originality in her work.” Yay! I also enjoyed the caption that thoroughly explained the current-day meaning of “trill.”
Another thank you goes out to gorgeous photographer Verena Stefanie Grotto, who recorded a night on the town with Gangsta Boo last week for the New York State of Mind blog on Vice.com. (That was the night that Boo rapped about my silver jewelry during her DJing gig. Boo and National Jeweler are on the same wavelength!) I sneaked into two of the photos myself, and there are some fantastic shots of the pieces I’ve made for Boo.
I appreciate the support, ladies!
UPDATED TO ADD: Gorgeous Jennifer Heebner of JCK Magazine included me in her post on last night’s Met Gala. Read her piece here.
