“A unique and powerful statement”. World class jeweler, Wendy Tonsits, inspires those who are looking for uncompromising quality and style but above all, an artistic statement that stands out in a crowd. That is what you can expect when you wear the sculptural jewelry creations handcrafted by artist, designer and jeweler, Wendy Tonsits.
“I have always considered myself a fierce individualist” says Tonsits. It’s no accident then that the art jewelry crafted in her personal studio is a reflection of her natural self expression to be distinctive and dynamic. A mesmerizing synthesis of bold clean lines and striking relationships of form and colored gemstones is her trademark.

Wendy Tonsits received her BA from the Philadelphia College of Art, currently the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. After graduating, Tonsits spent some time in Japan through Parsons School of Design, learning Japanese metalsmithing techniques first hand. Upon her return to the US, Wendy attended GIA, the Gemological Institute of America in New York City and received her Graduate Gemology Degree. Afterward she also worked in the GA Gem Trade Laboratory as a staff diamond grader.
Wendy has participated in the juried national shows sponsored by the American Craft Council and Wendy Rosen and has been a featured artist at the High Museum of Art.
