Twitter Sunday: Fav. Tweets @WendyBrandes


By Sama Team | December 20, 2009


  Last October, we published an article: Onyx Skull Ring by Wendy Brandes. We really liked the Onyx Skull Ring created by the designer and that's why we shared it with you. Since then, we have been following Wendy Brandes on Twitter and we don't regret it: she's a great designer but she also has a brilliant sense of humor. So it comes as no surprise our Twitter Sunday of today is about our Favorites Tweets @WendyBrandes!   Wendy's Tweets are very funny but it was hard to make a choice since she tweets a lot. So here is a selection of our Favorites Tweets @WendyBrandes between December 1st and December 6th. The period is short but as you will see, a lot happens on Wendy Brandes' Twitter: old acquaintance reappearing, compromising pictures, strong personality and bizarre reasoning...  

@impossiblecat He got in touch with me a couple of years ago and Surprise! He was still an asshole. 7:58 PM Dec 6th

 

@impossiblecat That was from my college boyfriend. I cried for three days. 7:53 PM Dec 6th

 

@labeletterouge If you need bizarre reasoning, I'm your woman. If it helps you, then it's not bizarre but good common sense! 9:54 PM Dec 3rd

 

@marian_kihogo sometimes I think having too much personality is a flaw in the design :-( People like unchallenging things, don't you think? 5:54 PM Dec 3rd

 

@Retrochick_uk Why do people have to be in denial? As long as you're not covered in Cheeto dust, you're a class act in the blogosphere! 10:50 AM Dec 1st

 

@jeffbercovici Steiger just came home to find his wife (me) blogging in her pajamas. He knows what we really wear. But he still likes blogs. 10:42 AM Dec 1st   As you can see by yourself, @WendyBrandes is really worth to be read. And of course, don't forget to check her website, the jewelry she creates are amazing. Plus she assured us, replying to the comments some of the Sama-Readers sent concerning where the gems were coming from: '... Both rings [Onyx skull ring and the Marie Antoinette]were made by hand in New York, which is why the quality is so high. I do these kind of pieces one of a time — it takes many weeks to do something like this — they’re not stamped out by the hundreds or thousands at some factory in Asia. The green stones are tsavorite and I only work with gem wholesalers who guarantee in writing that they buy their stones from legitimate sources...'.   We will definitely keep following her work and her Twitter (looks like Max Dana appreciates her work a lot). You're invited to do so ;)

I’m blushing! I’ve never had my tweets reviewed before! Thanks for all the good words. And any of your readers who want to know more about my jewelry, medieval queens or swearing are always welcome to DM me on Twitter or email me through the blog.

Hi Wendy! I love what you do! I sent a comment on your blog back in October, about your sample sale in New York at BoConcept. I read your blog at least once a week since I read the post on the Gazette. I have to admit I am a fan :P

Miss WendyB has long been a great writer with a sharp wit. Only AFTER her writing career did she launch the also sharp and witty jewelry line. I own a few pieces, some custom, and they’re my all-time favorites.

She’s also a very loyal person.

Juliette, thank you so much! I love all my readers…especially if they become customers! ;-)

Meddi, no, but nice try. LOL!

OMG Meddi, you’re uncorrectable! :oops:

Wendy, I hope you don’t consider us only as ‘future customers’ because we are all staunch supporters of you on the Gazette :P

Thanks for the info enc, I didn’t know that. So Wendy is even more talented than I thought. She has a lot in common with Max then ;)

I just realized we’re just a bunch of WB’ fans here LOL

To be honest, I don’t wear jewelry so I can’t really appreciate the rings and necklaces. But I think Wendy is a beautiful woman. I worked for a fashion photographer in South of France for a long time and he would say your smile perfectly catch the light (or something like that in a good English…).

Jeez, we should launch a Wendy Brandes Fan Club on the Sama Gazette!

Or even better, maybe she can be a member of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society :P

The Lady Jane necklace is awesome!!! Why beautiful jewelry has to be so expensive? Or maybe it’s me, I’m not rich enough :roll:

Anyway, I will let me fellow colleagues know. Some of them are much healthier than me and I’m sure they will love Wendy’s jewelry :)

Hi there!

I will have a look to Mrs Brandes website and see if I can find something to offer my girlfriend. She’s really into jewelry. How unfortunate for me ;)

Ha ha, Freeman, I think I like your girlfriend.

And, yeah, Juliette, the question is why aren’t you richer? ;-) I’ve got 14 carats of loose rubies in rock crystal that want to go live with you.

JBKaval, I can forgive anyone for not liking jewelry as long as he says I’m personally beautiful. That’s a fair trade. LOL. People who think I’m ugly better damn well love jewelry.

Hell! I was out of town for 2 days and when I come back you all had a lot of fun without me!

I always appreciate when we have VIP joining our discussions. See, we got some weird specimens on the Sama Gazette, and apparently you have already met some of them ;)

I just sent an email to the Sama Team, asking if Wendy could become a member of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society, if she accepts the invitation of course. Waiting for the response but I’m very confident they will say yes ;)

Oh my, Arnold! That’s exciting! What would my responsibilities be? Are there funny hats and secret handshakes. DO I HAVE TO TAKE A BLOOD OATH?!

Sama Reader Arnold

avatar

Ah ah ah no, no blood oath (well, as far as I know of!) ;)

In fact, every regular Sama Reader is part of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society, but to be an active member, you have to know everyhing about the World of Sama. Only then the Sama Team will accept you as an active member.

Some of us have succeeded, some others have failed (sorry Mark, I had to give a name!). If you’re willing to join us I will support your demand as one of the oldest member (I know the creator, Max, it was easy for me) :P

Arnold, you don’t have to know everything about the World of Sama, you didn’t pass any exams, me either by the way :)

Wendy has everything to join us: a brilliant sense of humor, she’s funny, she’s a great designer and she’s now a regular. More than enough to be a member of the privileged Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society!

By the way, when will we receive our member card? :oops:

The Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society is a great idea. Seriously, some of us discussed about it when we met and even if for now it’s still a virtual club, it will be soon a real one. Louis told me Max wanted to do something about it. So Wendy will be a VIP Member :)

I’m also eager to know more about what Max Dana will do concerning the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society. First the Sama Gazette and now this club; Samaians are really taken care of! :P
