Thanks to Becky from Diamonds in the Library for including me in multiple jewelry-related gift lists. I really like how she broke it down by budget. Becky had already included my barbed-wire rings in silver in the $200 – $350 category. This week, she included my gold IDGAF necklace in the $500 – $1,000 category, to the distress of at least one gentle reader. Ha! My response is in the necklace, silly. For people looking for a more artistic piece from my luxury line, my Marie Antoinette ring and earrings are in the unlimited budget category.
If you’re looking for a bargain, check out my holiday sale here. And keep checking back, because as designs sell out, I’m adding new ones. The sale will continue till December 30, so those of you who gave the wrong gift have a chance to redeem yourselves … and the rest of you have a chance to treat yourselves. On New Year’s Eve, all items will return to full price. I only have one of many designs, so buy as soon as possible, before you lose a great piece to someone else! It’s already happened a couple of times.
By the way, The Jewellery Editor did a gift list of fine jewelry for the animal lover. I love how Rachel Garrahan described my Cleves ring:
“While we can’t give you Seven Swans a Swimming for Christmas, we can offer two perfectly matched swans in Wendy Brandes’ elegant Cleves ring, as inspired by Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII’s fourth wife, who was born in Schwanenburg, or Swan Castle.”
The ring featured is my 18K gold Cleves ring with diamonds, but if that’s beyond your budget, my silver version is on sale. I have only one available in size 6 … but this design fits snugly, so a 5.5 could wear it.
After this Cleves ring is sold, I won’t make any others in silver for my inventory. It will be by special request only, which means it will never go on sale again. It’s now or never, y’all! To see how it looks on, click here.
