Lovely blogger, jewelry designer, and friend of mine, Wendy Brandes is having a sample sale soon, and I thought the FPD readers might be interested in checking out her wares, along with the other designers who will be offering incredible discounts on their designs.
Wendy Brandes, The Brungers, OX Kids, Zang Toi

BoConcept, 105 Madison Avenue at 30th Street
About the brands:
Zang Toi: After Zang Toi established the, “House of Toi” collection in New York in 1989, he was awarded the 1990 Mouton Cadet Young Designer of the Year award, which recognizes the top young US designer of the year. Over the years, his design has evolved from the bright and decadent of the 1990s to the timeless yet modern lines of the turn of the country. No matter what the trend, Zang Toi creations are chic and glamorous, always highlighting the beauty of the female form.
Wendy Brandes: Wendy Brandes is strongly influenced by the stories of fascinating women, whether they lived in the 16th century or the Swinging ’60s. She creates 18K gold, platinum and silver pieces that are bold and eye-catching, yet feminine and organic. Mechanical pieces that open and close, unscrew or twist are her specialties. Her work was most recently featured in The Oprah Magazine and Marie Claire
