The Intrepid Wendell in Estonia

Wendell is frequently on the road. 

Last year, we counted hundreds of thousands of miles on jets, propellers, helicopters, float planes, trains, subways, busses, cars, vans, three wheelers, and rickshaws. 

We do this because the best things rarely come knocking on the door. We know that, in order to truly give our clients an experience that matches the joy they share, we have to go find the pulse of humanity for ourselves and bring it home. 


Tallin at 4:30PM

This week, we found ourselves in frozen Tallinn, Estonia. Estonia is celebrating 100 years of independence, but has been ruled by other sovereign crowns over much of the past 1000 years. Their own language of Estonian has been supplanted by Swedish, Russian, German, Finnish, and now English as the language of convenience. Today, the Estonian spirit is thriving and has found itself as a member of the European Union and NATO. 


In the cold and dark of 60 degrees north latitude, we shared in a private and fearless jewelers’ scene. With the knowledge and information we have gathered here, our own work can acknowledge the inspiration of the Estonians who were casting gold in the centuries before the Christian Era and the artists who work today.
