The Donte Pendant Necklace is a custom design, inspired by a peaceful & genuine soul. The gems are personally sourced and carefully chosen. This combination of stones is especially beneficial for a Libra.
The pendent was combined with an incredible grouping of healing stones: Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, Peridot, Sapphire (in deep coral), Tourmaline (pink/green spliced rectangle), gold bead, Blue Kyanite and a beautiful, faceted Emerald using a stacked stone design, as in Buddhism for additional Zen (suspended within). The "stack" framed in a 14K hollow arrowhead, hand-forged, channel wire and suspended from a large, dapped 14K Gold fill chain, Lobster clasp jump-rings and hand-forged BINC tag branded also with three (chi) arrowheads.
The DONTE is a dramatic 23" long. The center is filled with precious gemstones mounted in a 14K Gold framed arrowhead pendant necklace. Bohemian meets warrior appeal.
This design beams with:
• Amethyst rounded disk
• Smokey Quartz two-ways; in a large, faceted disk shape & faceted bead
• Peridot rounded disk
• Sapphire two-ways; fiery melon & traditional blue
• Tourmaline rectangle, rare blend, swirled with Green and Pink
• 14K Gold, sand-blasted beads
• Blue Kyanite
• Emerald rondelles
• Authenticated with a BINC, circular, hand-stamped 14K paillette.
This necklace is carefully crafted with the large, ornamental, incongruent-shaped pieces juxtaposed against the small, geometric color-filled ones. It contains incredibly vibrant gems. Some gems shiny and polished and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. Precious gems are of the highest quality AAA ratings. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with gemstones of the finest variety. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these hand-forged, beauties or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.

Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing seven-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
