Wendy Stevens handmakes purses, wallets, and totes of etched, pierced, or stamped stainless steel and beautiful leather, and they all make me go a bit weak in the knees. I can afford none of them, but I want them all. The struggle is real.
Her original inspiration came from the preponderance of steel in New York City (no wonder I love them!), and her clean, striking lines and graceful shapes are widely recognized as fine art. In fact, they are in the permanent collections of a number of museums across the world.
“A lot of my equipment is what you’d find in a place that makes gutters and roofs.”
You go, girl!
