I’m Christen and Deodata (dee-oh dotta,) known as Deo, was my grandmother. Deo encouraged me to become a maker at a young age. She helped me create my first business as a child, designing handmade greeting cards which she and her friends purchased. Deo supplied the watercolor paper and paints, and encouraged my creativity and business thinking.

Today Deo’s inspiration lives on and takes the form of Deodata Design, my creative pursuit as a jeweler. Deodata Jewelry is a convergence of experiences, cherished materials, and cultural reflections portrayed in the form of jewelry and functional ware. Each piece is hand crafted and one-of-a-kind. 

Thank you for supporting small businesses like ours!
