About the Designer
Artist and Professional Jewelry Designer, Paola Giordano was born and raised on the North Shore of Long Island, NY. She has always had an artistic ability and began attending various art classes as a child. She furthered her study of art when she attended the University of Maryland, College Park, where she majored in Art History.
Paola developed Pagio Jewelry Designs (PJD) in 2003 following success with a line of hair clips and small jewelry pieces she was creating. She transitioned from the corporate world to full time professional jewelry artist in July 2015.
Pagio Jewelry Designs pieces are made utilizing the most unique and interesting semi-precious stones in conjunction with various precious metals (i.e.: brass, sterling silver, copper, pewter) in order to create one of a kind statement pieces of wearable art. Paola takes pride in each piece of jewelry that she creates. Her designs can range from the demure to the bold, and she enjoys experimenting, conceptualizing, and executing ideas. Paola designs and fabricates all of her work independently, and takes pride in craftsmanship. Pagio Jewelry Designs also specializes in custom pieces, redesign and/or repair work, and enjoys working with clients in order to meet their vision.
Pagio Jewelry Designs travels to and participates in between 35-40 juried art events from April through Christmas each year. In addition to selling at shows/events, Pagio Jewelry Designs work is carried in various boutique stores and galleries. You may also shop on line via the website- www.pagio.biz and follow Pagio Jewelry Designs on Facebook and Instagram.
Matte, graduated, and natural amazonite stones are separated by sterling silver and hematite beads.
Large pewter toggle closure.
The necklace measures 26"- which hits at the bust line.
This is a Pagio Jewelry Designs best selling statement necklace! It is a best seller as the length is versatile, the colors complement everything in the wardrobe, is a comfortable weight, and is visually stunning. As the stones are matte, over time, they will develop a "patina" in which the color of the natural stones will become richer and more enhanced. This tremendous statement necklace looks outstanding on each and every person who has decided on adding this to their jewelry collection and will be enjoyed for years to come!
