Protection, solace, and peace of mind.
A principal Taino deity, Atabex (or Atabey) has presided over the Caribbean for countless generations. She’s appeared in many different forms and manifestations, but the foremost is her presiding role as the greatest of all mothers.
As a mother deity, she’s the origin of the Sun and the Moon, the bringer of gentle rains, arbiter of winds and the sea. She’s the spirit of fertile, bountiful nature.
We’ve named our Atabex enamel pendants after six far-flung cities or regions that inspire us. We’ve also added a touch of Turkish design to this Caribbean queen—a nazar boncuk, the famed Turkish “evil eye”—sits in her lap, in the shelter of her arms.
Glance down at Atabex during your travels. Hold her in your hand for she is holding yours. She will center you on your journey—allowing you to fearlessly embrace what the world has to offer.
