Interview with Wendy Brandes

Wendy Brandes is a woman with a strong sense of style, and she ain't afraid to show it! Her jewelry is bold with a sense of whimsy and each piece is inspired by a strong female figure from history.  Her collections encapsulate what it means to be a woman in the truest sense; in turn feminine and daring, creative and resourceful.  Hardly surprising then, that a pair of her snake earrings were chosen by stylists to be worn by Samantha in the new Sex and the City 2 movie. Here, she answers some questions about her work.

What are your favorite materials to work with?

18K yellow gold -always with a matte finish.

However, the unique lines and techniques of her jewelry intrigued and attracted me.  It is the kind of jewelry that I would create if I was brave enough, but always find myself erring on the side of convention.  Here, she talks to The Jewelry Report about her work.

Any material that I can get my hands on IS my favorite material at that moment.
