Deb Durant

My passion for art and design began in my youth – in the late 60’s and early 70′s – growing up outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I focused on art throughout my schooling and attended Southeastern Massachusetts University and Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and then worked as an interior designer in Boston in the late 80’s – 90’s while apprenticing in jewelry design. In 1996 I relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area to further my career as a multi-disciplinary designer.

The first decade of my career was spent focused on hospitality and residential interior design, while learning jewelry design and fabrication nights/weekends. Once relocated to northern California, my work balance shifted to full-time jewelry design and goldsmithing, while consulting on small scale interior design projects.

I’m passionate about working across multiple design disciplines and relish coordinating and collaborating with artists/artisans, specialized contractors, and builders at a range of scales and types of design work.

In addition to custom jewelry design and metalworking, my projects include design / creation / implementation of interior environments, furniture & lighting design, accessories, printed graphics, and creative wearables.
