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 sizeable business that combines great quality and workmanship with innovative, eclectic design.
Mink’s inspiration to begin designing came after extensive travel through South East Asia. While holding a position at the World Bank, Mink gained extensive knowledge of the developing work and gained an immense appreciation for 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.
Mink’s signature pieces combine aspects of traditional Eastern 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. The success of Wendy Mink Jewelry owes itself not only to Mink’s own designs but also to the team of highly skilled Tibetan women who handcraft each piece of jewelry in her Tribeca based studio.
