Unlike many jewelers, Los Angeles artist Wendy Walker not only designs but manufactures all of her original pieces. As a GIA-certified diamond grader and gemologist, she selects her own diamonds and precious stones. A skilled bench jeweler and stone setter, she is adept at working with both gold and platinum, and continues to fuel a passion for simplicity and elegance of style.
Walker studied with Master jeweler/designer Eytan Brandes becoming his apprentice and later came to work with Fernando Garcia, an accomplished Van Cleef and Arpels setter, spending sixteen years with both these masters. The artist has restored and collected antique jewelry, inspiring her study of period design, old world metals, stones and past manufacturing methods. Her work is timeless and elegant, offering collectors of her work years and generations of style.
