Dean Harris is a jewelry designer who lives and works in New York City. He is a self-taught artist who has chosen the medium of metal to express himself. He has been fusing wire into organic shapes since 1999 when he discovered his hidden talent through a philosophical quest of inquiring why people adorn themselves. The answer to this question was simple: people inherently need to relate to an undiscerning world in a positive way. Dean believes that this can be accomplished through the self-expression of what we wear.
Knowing no boundary, his pieces consist primarily of 18K gold and silver and often combine diverse materials such as Tahitian pearls, fossilized mammoth, or naturally shed horn. Rainbows of tourmalines and opals and exquisite diamonds also form a rich palette of color that extends this beautiful aesthetic.
Dean Harris’ jewelry is reminiscent of nature. Natural forms flow from the heart to up-lift the human spirit.
