Wendy Mink Jewelry GIVEAWAY

As all of you know I love coming across new online shops.  A few months ago I discovered Wendy Mink Jewelry and fell in LOVE.  Each piece is exquisite and exceptionally crafted.  Wendy's pieces are definite statement pieces.  Even her Simplicity styles have a "WOW" factor.  I had to contact the Wendy Mink team to let them know how much they rock!!


Tell us a little about Wendy Mink Jewelry
Wendy Mink has been in business for about 20 years.  Wendy has always operated out of NYC and has worked with Tibetan artisans from the very beginning  An important thing for Wendy is the quality and workmanship behind each piece. Each piece is handmade right here in NYC or by collaborative artisans in Peru and India. We try to maintain a 'personal touch' and very much enjoy an informal relationship with our web and boutique customers.

Where does WMJ gather inspiration?
Wendy's main inspiration is from vintage jewelry, with Victorian being her first love. Travel is also important with India, Nepal & Tibet featuring in design.

What type of girl, do you envision wearing WMJ pieces?
In terms of customers we see the WMJ customer as being an individualist with an eclectic sense of style! our customers are so varied!

Any tips on accessorizing?
Wendy's motto is "If you love it then you will wear it well."  Don't follow trends.  Buy what you see working year after year for you!

Wendy Mink was so kind to send me my very own Wendy Mink piece, this stunning Ruby Cocktail Ring.  I've wanted a ruby ring for so long and I'm truly thankful that I received such a gorgeous ring.  Especially since ruby is my birthstone.  (Yay, it's my birthday tomorrow!)


And Wendy Mink has generously offered to give one of my readers the chance to win their very own Ruby Cocktail Ring (shape will vary).  See details below to see how you can win!


Giveaway Rules
1.  Leave you Name and Email address.
2.  Visit Wendy Mink Jewelry and tell me what your favorite item is. 

Easy peasy right! Right. :)
*Giveaway open to everyone, yes International readers too!!*
Winner will be announced on Monday, August 2nd.

Love, S

Hi! I love Wendy Mink and have several of her pieces that I've bought over the years. She has great sales and the sale stuff sells out fast! The quality of the jewelry is nice for the price point.
Currently my favorite piece that I'm obsessing about is the ring you guys are actually giving away,ha!I like the necklace too that sorta matches with it. I adore the pinkish red tones. Looking at those colors makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
peace,love and shoes! err, um, jewelry. ")

I love your ring, Sharon! Cath and I also share rubies as our birthstone, and I've always been a huge fan of the ruby slippers. I love how delicate most of their pieces are, but seeing your ring makes me love the boldness of its design!

Allie said...

Ooooh, that ring is so cute!
I'm digging the Juicy Cluster Chain. Perfect for summer, and it's a great name for the piece.
