Pandora & Pendragon: 1972, Germany
Pandora Barthen was born in Frankfurt to American parents.
A promising young artist, Pandora was influenced by many exotic cultures.
She traveled throughout Europe and the Far East as a youngster and young
woman. Pandora was invited to be a special apprentice to Sir Henry Moore
and Anthony Ciro at St. Martins School for the Arts in London. Circumstances
required that she pass up this opportunity and, instead, establish herself
as a successful interior designer. In 1993, Pandora settled in Washington
State. As an outlet for her love of creating sculptural objects, she began
creating jewelry. Now a professional jewelry designer, Pandora Barthen
has found mediums and styles which guided her to becoming a master artist
and craftswoman, creating jewelry designs known throughtout the country.

Lee Wooldridge, have been active on the Internet as a jewelry business
since 1997. Pandora & Pendragon™ is a member in good standing of several

has studied with some of the finest American jewelry artists. The jewelry

frequently recommends the use of old and unused jewelry. She suggests
that recycling jewelry is way to be ecologically responsible while still
being able to enjoy the height of fashion. Many custom designs have been
produced using reclaimed silver, gold, platinum and gems from jewelry
that had been irreparably damaged, doesn't fit a lifestyle, or had become
just too outdated to be enjoyable. Pandora & Pendragon™ will work closely
with each client creating custom jewelry to specifications and measurements.

and gems (subject to availability). Contact us with specific requirements
