It has been more than 20 years since artist and designer Wendy Mink first began her New York City based jewelry design company. Over this time, Wendy Mink Jewelry has evolved from small scale design and manufacturing into a substantial business that combines great quality and workmanship with innovative, eclectic design.
Mink first became inspired to begin her own jewelry company after extensive work and travel through South East Asia. Her travels began with a position working for the World Bank where Mink gained extensive knowledge of economic development and began developing an immense appreciation of the beauty and craftsmanship behind jewelry and textiles associated with the women of this area, from traditional wedding dress to everyday clothing and adornment. Wendy Mink formulated her company shortly after returning from the East, quickly earning a solid reputation and securing a place in the competitive jewelry industry.
The success of Wendy Mink Jewelry since these early beginnings is due not only to Mink’s own inspired designs but also to the team of highly skilled Tibetan women who handcraft each piece of jewelry in the Tribeca based studio. This studio is also home to a team of production and press staff who work closely with Mink to market and distribute jewelry. A retail store on the Lower East Side provides an outlet for customers to view and purchase a tempting selection from recent and past collections.
Mink’s signature pieces combine aspects of traditional Eastern world jewelry with classic European design. The collections themselves are an ever-changing array of beautifully crafted jewelry that traverse style boundaries and succeed in appealing to a hugely diverse market. Wendy Mink Jewelry is available in many boutiques throughout the USA, Europe and Japan including well-known department stores, Barneys Japan, Liberty & Harvey Nichols.
In recent years Wendy Mink Jewelry has received substantial media coverage with appearances in a variety of international publications, including; Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Harpers Bazaar magazines.
All styles are hand-made or assembled in Tribeca New York. Materials in clued vermeil, 18k gold plated brass, semi-precious stones, vintage beads, fresh water pearls, wood, filigree and more. Wendy Mink also works with artisans in India and Peru to create unique hand-cut components and styles.
