Now through Christmas Eve, Deborah Armstrong’s award–winning jewelry will be at the Grand Central Holiday Gift Fair. Her textured silver with 18k gold and gemstone accents uses repousse, etching, piercing and fabrication techniques. In addition to this holiday fair, her work is also on display at Greenwich’s Bruce Museum “Bijoux Exhibition.” Gina Gould, the curator, is a paleontologist and asked Armstrong, a resident of Greenwich, Conn., to develop a collection using fossils, and the collection is on display through March 2012.
Armstrong’s inspirations come from a variety of sources embracing architecture, petites fours, Celtic eternity knots and Moorish tile work. Most pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited edition. Her fine arts background includes the University of Colorado, Parson’s School of Design, Cecelia Bauer’s Studio in New York City and working as a model maker for Industrial Light and Magic. She has been cited in fashion magazines and among her clients are Halle Berry, Jennifer Connelly, Faith Hill, Diane Sawyer and Sharon Stone.
