Wendy Jo New Metal Designs | Precious metals, gemstones, unique lapidary, resin inlay

Biography and Links

Growing up, I always was mesmerized by sparkling gemstones and metals and I often incorporate something illuminating into my designs. Whether or not I intricately plan a jewelry piece in advance of producing it or just spontaneously fabricate one as I go along, the result is inevitably something that is unique with a contemporary flair that complements, rather than overwhelms, a wearer. When designing jewelry or other metal work, I always think about whether I would wear it, use it, and/or display it. Anyone who knows me sees a reflection of me in what I design.

In addition to participating in art shows, sales, and doing commission work, I love providing instruction in jewelry design and metal fabrication.

In addition to designing and fabricating work, I do repair work and re-design work for clients.

Artist Statement

I produce fine contemporary jewelry and other metal designs primarily in the precious metals of silver, argentium, gold, and/or palladium. These are often further defined with the addition of texturing, gemstones and other unique lapidary, or resin inlay. I also manufacture photo-etched metal jewelry, cover plates which may be attached to journals or framed, 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. In addition to designing and fabricating work, I do repair work and re-design work for clients.
