stone metal studio

Originally from New England, Deb Yon developed her passion for handcrafted jewelry and metalsmithing working summers for a silversmith on Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts.

She finds inspiration in the textures and colors of the Mediterranean coast line which she incorporates into her work.

“I have a passion for designing jewelry around natural stones and sea-pottery shards. Each piece has its own story. As I work, I wonder, “What was this? Where is it from? Who might have touched this?”

Deb enjoys every aspect of the artistic process, designing, selecting the material, the metal texturing and patinas – it’s all part of “going to that place” she says, “the emotional space to create”.

Deb can most often be found working on her unique wearable art in her quiet, undisturbed workshop in the woods…The Stone Metal Studio in Rockford.
