Wendy Jo New Metal Designs
Wendy Jo New produces fine contemporary jewelry and other metal designs primarily in the precious metals of gold, silver, palladium, and platinum. These are often further defined with the addition of texturing, gemstones and other unique lapidary, or resin inlay. Wendy Jo New also manufactures photo-etched metal jewelry, cover plates which may be attached to journals or framed (think wedding invitations), and larger etchings used in buildings as entry door logos, addresses, and the like. Designing and fabricating engagement and wedding bands and other jewelry, often with people’s stones, is particularly meaningful to her and is an expanding portion of her business. Please contact Wendy to set up a meeting for an engagement ring, wedding ring, or other piece or redesign that you wish to have her design for you.
In addition to participating in art shows, sales, and doing commission work, Wendy Jo New provides group instruction in jewelry design and metal fabrication, as well as private instruction, including working with couples to make their own wedding bands. She also does jewelry repair work. Her work is available in her online store, as well as in several galleries and stores throughout the country. Wendy’s work has been featured in Colored Stone Magazine and her resin inlay work is in the book, Resin Jewellery by Clare John.
