I am Bishop Derek Moise Destin, I. Few would consider me a piece of the jewelers' professions. Gold Silver platinum facets and cabochons: I love precious trinkets and baubles. So much, I went from consumer to designer in my garage. Jewelry infatuation brings me here.
It stems from a curiosity: why are the most influential of us not wearing our designs?
Why did I not know Art Smith or Winfred Mason-Chenet before I learned about a Cuban link or gold front!?
Primitivism is an important thing and not just in the previous descriptions of our culture!

I'm a businessman and bred to seek opportunistic potential in "every thing." These are trying times not to put your head in the sand or your finger on the trigger.
It's time to rise above and make a new standard that others can't help but see as the way to do business and live.
I'm a first-generation Haitian/Antiguan Afro-descent American Male. My family was poor, mis/unrepresented, hungry, and the epitome of the disenfranchised.
I have lived all sides of the fight. I take up arms for this ideal now and forever!
