Delias Thompson's inspiration stems from the cold hard lines of modern architecture as well as the soft shapes found in nature. She seeks to balance the two as a harmonic paradox by offering a collection of elegant, yet edgy, jewelry.
Thompson combines cast elements with hand fabrication to bring her work to life. With an emphasis on texture, the artist creates layers of visual stimulation. All of her jewelry is completely hand-finished.
Thompson began her education with classes in fabrication at a local art center.She continued to expand her skills by learning specific techniques, such as granulation, at workshops led by instructors from Revere Academy. Intense study came later, as she was guided by master gold-smith, Helen Blythe-Hart, who led her to develop her own unique style and voice.
