L.A. Based Artist Creates Equality Pendant
There are two kinds of people in this world, pride jewelry people, and non-pride jewelry people. While some of us will refuse to wear a rainbow, others boast bejeweled nipple rings. However, Los Angeles-based designer Carlos Antonio hopes to bridge the gap and give back to his community. The 31-year-old recently unveiled the "Fight for Equality" pendant. The pendant, a clenched fist made of silver benefits Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund (TCF), Give A Damn (GAD), and the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER).

"I have been designing jewelry for seven years. I studied sculpture, then ended up casting my own pieces," Antonio told SFGN. "The stylists, at Barney's New York Beverly Hills, where I worked, admired the pieces I made and asked me where to get them, when I told them I made them the stylists started to buy them from me."

After that Antonio was courted by Hollywood stylists, to cast specific pieces for movies and television. When his friend and mentor of several years, Chad Griffith, founder of AFER, launched the lawsuit to overturn Prop 8 in San Francisco, Antonio wanted to support the cause.
