Deborah Vivas, a Canadian metalsmith with a background in Architecture and Design, has a playful outlook and practical approach to design. She imbues her art with motion, energy and function in an elegant form creating one of a kind, handmade pieces in high karat gold, silver and iron. She is challenged by discovering new techniques and materials with every collection. Fusing metals, using raw gemstones and creating unique stone settings remain a constant in her unique jewelry lines.
Deborah’s dynamic international experiences - living and creating jewelry in Venezuela, Mexico, the United States and Canada - inspired a respect for the global landscape and local environments. She is dedicated to sustainability in her studio. She purchases recycled metals and believes that playful and interesting jewelry does not need to sacrifice elegance or ethics; it can reflect a commitment to finding balance with the environment that provides our resources.
