Deborah Caperton graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1989 with a major in jewelry and light metals as well as a minor in sculpture. Soon after, she moved to Northern California where she continues to make art and jewelry.
“Whether I make sculpture or jewelry, my inspiration comes from nature, finding unique and hidden moments from outside and bringing it into our lives, on our bodies and in our homes.”
Currently, Deborah lives in San Francisco with her husband and 2 daughters. She established her jewelry company in 1997, making custom jewelry and limited production collections. Her work is exhibited nationally. She has also taught jewelry and metalsmithing classes at San Francisco State University, The Academy of Art University and The Richmond Art Center.
Deborah enjoys creating narrative based interactive assemblages, wall pieces that she uses a variety of fine art techniques mingled with metal fabrication, she has been exhibiting this work since 2000.
