New York-based designer Wendy Brandes is the 2012 winner of Fashion Group International's Rising Star Award for fine jewellery. Wendy led the luxury-goods industry in the social-media realm when she launched her humorous and frank blog in 2007. That playful side of her personality and her social-media know-how are on display in her WENDYB by Wendy Brandes silver diffusion line, which features designs such as a SRSLY? necklace, emoji earrings, and her much-imitated F@#! ring set.
Wendy's work has been featured in publications including InStyle, Elle, W Magazine and British Vogue, and on Style.com. Her designs have adorned celebrities such as Rihanna, Britney Spears and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Skylar Grey, and her work has placed in the JCK's Jeweller's Choice Awards and the American Jewellery Design Council New Talent Competition.
