Pandora & Pendragon: 1972, Germany

The Artist:

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.

The founder of Pandora & Pendragon™, Pandora Barthen with Lee Wooldridge, have been active on the Internet as a jewelry business since 1997. Pandora & Pendragon™ is a member in good standing of several professional organizations including: Gemological Institute of America; The Jewelers Vigilance Committee; and The Accredited Gemologists Association. She has won prestigious awards and been published in national professional literature and books including the Lark Book, GemStone Jewlels.

She suggests that recycling jewelry is way to be ecologically responsible while still being able to enjoy the height of fashion.
