Meet the Designers & Co-Owners of Deo duPont™

We believe that every beautiful story should have an equally-beautiful beginning. A shared passion, a common purpose, and a strong dedication to handmade jewelry have brought us together on this path. For those of you who are only now stumbling upon our little corner of heaven, we think it’s time we introduced ourselves. For those of you who already know our craft, we think it’s time we knew each other better.



Meet Donna duPont and Maggie Swanson!


Our names are Donna duPont and Maggie Swanson and besides being two dedicated mothers and cousins, we are also best friends who share a common passion: jewelry making. We have been doing this since 2016. Day after day, we are trying to focus our intentions on the beautiful things in life and to bring joy to everyone who is willing to receive it.


We believe that the greatest form of beauty can be found in the smallest of details and therefore, we decided to put together our creative minds and create pieces of jewelry that are not only pretty and versatile but also tell a story. Deo duPont came to be after numerous walks, coffees, and talks between two best friends with a common passion.


The Sources of Our Inspiration

Both of us have a little bit of entrepreneurship experience which helped us throughout this journey of spreading love through our craft. With Deo duPont, we wanted to be able to sell handmade jewelry that encapsulated our love for beauty. Moreover, we looked at our creation as a means of spreading our love for travel, animals, the ocean, and last but not least, our families. We believe that being able to share these feelings with as many people as possible and doing it through what we love most is truly a blessing.


Witnesses of Blessings

Hearing from our customers and witnessing the joy that our jewelry brought to them is the best part of what we are doing. If only wearing a necklace of ours has made any of you even a little bit happier than before, it means that we have accomplished our goal. Putting smiles on people’s faces is what drives us to go forward and develop our craft even more. Our handmade jewelry will not only bring joy to your life but will also help you feel more energized, grateful, fulfilled, and an overall more serene person.


Beauty Lies in the Details

When it comes to the designing process for Deo DuPont, we like to say that our jewelry completely reflects our way of living. This means that by wearing our pieces you will also feel joy even from the smallest of everyday things and with intention. We use medals, gems, and saints which we strongly believe can heal anyone wearing them.

Another extremely important detail regarding the Deo duPont jewelry is that we use timeless elements that will never go out of style. Besides that, our medals, saints, earrings, necklaces, and beaded bracelets are filled with 14K gold. This means that you can wear them without worrying that tarnish will destroy them. This is the essence of being carefree and focusing on enjoying the good things in life. Besides that, our very special method of blessing each jewelry piece will put a big smile on your face the moment you put it on.


Paying It Forward

Now that we are friends and all of you know the story and philosophy of Deo duPont, it’s time to talk a bit about how we like to help others and spread the love. We are incredibly proud and honored to have supported a large number of causes at the Boca Grande Health Clinic, St. Mary’s School, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, St. Ignatius College Preparatory in San Francisco, Friends of Youth Services, and, last but not least, Operation Homefront. We promise to not stop here and continue giving aid to those who need it the most. We believe that if we can make people smile a bit more through our creations, we should consider ourselves extremely lucky and blessed.

The Philosophy of Joy

As you may have already noticed by now, we are not only the designers and co-owners of Deo duPont. We are, in fact, two halves of a whole. We are looking for nothing more than to bring blessings into people’s lives through our handmade creations. Regardless of which particular piece of jewelry you pick from our collections, the occasions for which you do that, or the people you wish to gift them to, our philosophy of joy remains the same.


Remember that what we are trying to accomplish through our art represents the natural result of an incredible friendship and a long planning time. Throughout the years we have learned how to help people become happier with themselves first and then how to make the ones around them happy too. This is a simple process that each of us can go through with a bit of faith, focus, and, of course, work.


So, next time you are looking for jewelry that has a truly positive impact and tells a story, come visit us! We will always welcome each of you with joy and light. We promise to continue this journey and spread the love as far away as possible.
