Deborah Beck

Festival: 2018

Deborah works from a small studio in Holmfirth where she creates contemporary silver and mixed metal jewellery with a clean and distinctive style.

Her debut work, ‘Mangrove Co2llection’, was inspired by issues of global warming after a recent trip around the mangrove forests of Guadeloupe. The collection explores themes of protection and carbon capture and includes several different styles of ring, bangle, necklace and ear wear, all inspired by the magnificent shapes and undulations of the mangrove roots.

Deborah is especially interested in alternative ear adornment and enjoys the creative possibilities opened up with this experimental approach to dressing the ears. Cuffs, climbers and statement ear pieces are often prominent features within her collections.

Deborah was recently awarded the ‘Jan & David Roberts award for emerging talent’ at Art& York in 2017, and her work has been featured in two BBC TV Drama Series, ‘Death In Paradise” and ‘In The Club’.
