Length: 24" 

Quincy Hamby: "I have been designing jewelry for 30 years. I am always working on new lines that express my attachment to others and the world beyond my doorstep. I grew up in Hawaii and have traveled to Europe and Central America. These places are echoed in my work, and help to make my jewelry more interesting.

The jewelry industry is more than DeBeers diamonds from South Africa. It includes African trading beads, carved shells from the Mali coast, Russian amber and the handmade free-trade products coming from Ecuador and the Philippines. My passion is culture and its responses to trade and business and the players involved.

Another driving passion is for color and design, and that’s what compels me to keep reinventing my jewelry. My desire is to make these women as happy as I possibly can. And that means great customer service. If you need something repaired, I’m happy to do it. If something doesn’t work, let’s find something that does.

I make a living doing what I love, and I especially realize that the small things are important. You wake up one day and say to yourself, wow! I’ve created a magical life. I have a passion for what I do, and at the end of the day that’s what sustains the soul."

Condition: Very good.
