Wendy noticed an enormous need for small, durable handbags - just big enough to fit some change, a driver's license and lipstick. That was the genesis of her first metal handbags. What marks her designs, above and beyond durability, is the assortment of sizes, shapes and metals. Maintaining her integrity as a designer, she continues to make each piece by hand, with the help of a small staff. And just when you thought she had exhausted all materials, she comes up with new ones and new combinations. In fact, she now designs her own sheet metals! The originality of her designs has garnered attention in top fashion and design magazines around the world. Wendy Stevens handbags are sold in specialty stores throughout the U.S. and at juried exhibitions such as the Smithsonian and Philadelphia Museum of Art shows.
