Deb Haney - Jewelry

 As soon as I was old enough and had a job, I began to travel – across the USA and to places I had dreamed about…England, France, Italy, Mexico, Bermuda, Morocco, Turkey and soon to be Ireland!). My family roots in Nova Scotia and yearly reunion road trips instilled a love of the beauty of northern New England, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, Cape Breton ….. all things Maritime Canada…all things garden and ocean! I made new friends who came from around the world and wanted to know more about their cultures. My sister and family moved to the “opposite coast” in the 1970’s. Since that time not a year has gone by without a trip or two, and now, most winters in my favorite US state, sunny California! In addition to natural beauty, all of these new lands had one very important thing to draw me …. Unique art, antiques and handmade objects reflecting their varied histories and cultures. I was hooked on travel and collecting!

When my husband and I were vacationing in the west and northwest in the mid 1970’s, I became drawn to turquoise and other natural stones. Soon I was inspired to create unusual jewelry pieces using the stones, beads and focal pieces I had been collecting. That was the beginning…

I am always experimenting with materials and techniques and am proud of the fact that I employ the same age-old techniques of tying, hammering, weaving, stringing that have been used for ages by all cultures in jewelry making. Whenever I can, I try to incorporate old or unusual objects or beads from my travels, from other times and different cultures. Tribal pieces are my favorites! It is a very pleasurable form of recycling.

I love knowing that despite outward differences we are all alike in our love of art and beauty and that we all dream and gaze at the same moon and stars in the night sky!

THANK YOU for joining me on this journey, and for purchasing my creations. Contact noa if you like a particular style or idea. No two pieces are ever exactly alike, but together we can make something with a similar feel just for you.
