Deborah Jones' Profile
Welcome to my Etsy shop.
I live in rural north Devon. UK
I have been making and selling jewelry since my teens, I was fortunate enough to do some weekend courses with the jeweler Michael Bolton, who was a great inspiration, following school I went to the John Cass art school in London where I studied art and design, and specialised in jewelry making, whilst also working "a kind of apprenticeship" for the jeweler Lesley Craze both in her workshop and gallery.
I believe my creative style must stem from a childhood surrounded by African and Indian art. As souvenirs from business trips my father would bring me Ashanti gold weights or carved beads (unusual gifts for a small child, but I treasured them, and have them in my workshop today.)
I'm not sure if I was always destined to make jewelry , or wether it was deliberate avoidance of doing something more academic, whichever, I love…
