Astroid 326 Or 'A Prince & His Planets'

Like so many others, I've always been enchanted by the story of the young boy from afar with more wisdom and faith than many of us might learn in a lifetime. Author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry gave millions upon millions of young children a powerful story and provided an enduring foundation where others may have crumbled. Perhaps that is why an original, first edition copy of 'The Little Prince' published by Reynal & Hitchcock can sometimes fetch upwards of $20K or beyond (see Abe's Books online).

In any case, I was starstruck to search & discover a beautiful handmade sterling charm of 'Le Petit Prince,' hand-cast in Europe. I snapped it up in a jiffy and so my design whimsy began. The large cobalt blue round lampwork studio bead is by an esteemed Israeli artist and the other lampwork beads are created by yet other artists, living abroad. There are three other sterling charms - a petite, but solid ss earth, an enamel and sterling earth and a lone ss star. The sterling bail is hand-wrought by a local metalsmith. All other findings and chain are sterling as well.

My 'Little Prince' pendant is one of just 5 designs I will be making around the theme and using similar beads, however the designs will not be identical. You are welcome to request a custom order for a similar pendant, a purse 'fob' or a keychain fob (to be treated delicately). Similarly, I can also add a watch face to any fob as well for an additional charge.
