Jewellery Inspired by Memento Mori, Religious Symbolism, Alchemy and Nature.
BEHIND THE DESIGNS
Debra Gordon is drawn to antiquity, such as nun's crucifixes that have been worn smooth over the years, sacred hearts, heavy oxidized sterling chains and rosary beads. Every piece she uses has its own history with a contemporary twist while being meticulously handcrafted. As she was discovering her signature aesthetic, Debra labored to find the perfect balance between spirituality, elegance, boldness and grace. The final result? Dark, Edgy, sexy and dangerous, yet still appealing to a wide range of styles and design devotees. All jewelry pieces are handcrafted in her North Carolina studio using semi-precious and precious gemstones, sterling silver, leather and bronze.
This jewelry line finds strength and beauty in unconventional pendants and designs, while tending to favor contrasted elements of dark, light, luxury and grit.
DEMORIAM Jewellery was launched in 2008. The line has evolved over the years and will continue to evolve with the goal of hand crafting unique adornments for women and men to wear.
shop DEMORIAM JEWELLERY
Handmade jewelry using silver, brass, bronze and copper along with cast skulls claws and teeth, found objects, religious symbolism, antique and vintage items. Delivering pieces that are familiar yet remarkably unique. Jewelry that has a touch of elegant macabre. I started this collection of cast skulls and claws for women and men who were not afraid to wear something a little more edgy and unconventional.
THE DELICATE FOREVER
Antique, Vintage & Assemblage One-of-a-kind jewelry made with vintage and antique components. Jewelry designs using a variety of mixed media techniques and re purposed vintage elements that I've found in my searches through flea markets, antique stores, estate sales and the like.
THE DREAM CIRCLE
Sacred adornments. Shaman and Tribal pieces and talismans that are created for ceremony and spiritual practices.
My Cherokee Moon pieces are featured in this collection as well. Distinctive pieces that embody the spirit, quality and artistry of the American Southwest. Design components include fossil carvings, custom Sterling and Copper Pendants, Beads and Cones; custom traditional Pendants; Turquoise from Nevada, Arizona & New Mexico mines; and other semiprecious Stones from around the globe. Where appropriate, I will incorporate the work of select Southwest and Native American silversmiths, adding another dimension to my designs.
All jewelry is respectfully made with uplifting and protective energy. My home and studio are ceremonial, sacred spaces. It is where I keep close to the spirit world. While my spiritual path can best be described as Native American shamanic, it goes beyond any one tradition. Simply put, it is about working with all types of crystal energy and the communion between the dimensions of the spiritual world and our physical one. I smudge almost daily with burning sage, copal or palo santo which helps create a beautiful energy in which to work in.
