Michael Bondanza is a gifted designer with a passion for art and jewelry. His jewelry career began in the early 70's with his desire to create a western style belt buckle for himself. Native American images set him on his first path. However, with his growing mastery of technique, a more personal sense of design began to evolve. Michael became increasingly aware of the quality of craft and the level of design he wanted to aspire to. His two favorite designers were Georg Jensen and the early work of Cartier.
As demand for his designs grew, Bondanza decided to expand his business. In 1974, the designer began selling his jewelry to some Fifth Avenue's finest retailers. Michael registered his trademark Platinum Redefined as he continued to use platinum as his canvas in a new way, and as his designs became more of a personal vision expressed through the art of jewelry. It takes at least ten years to get grounded, to gain enough skill and experience to begin to tackle something with real meaning.
