Deborah Richardson fabricates her jewelry using the techniques of forging, raising, peening milling and soldering. She uses sterling silver, 14 karat gold and goldfilled wire and sheet, working the hard, cold metals into visually soft and fluid ornaments. Her work has a distinctive identity with curved, organic forms of nature reflecteding grapevine tendrils, river ripples and cloudlike swirls.
Deborah designs and fabricates her jewelry in her studio in Concord, MA. The studio is located in an artists’ building that is walking distance to the conservation land that provides much of the inspiration for her work. Deborah has a B.A. degree form Wesleyan University where she majored in studio art and minored in education.
