Dean Aaron was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1984. Early in his life, he discovered that he had a knack for creation. "I always knew my calling was crafting things with my hands," Dean stated, "even from an early age, I was always making things -- anything." In 1994 his family left South Africa to pursue a better life in America. Relocating from Africa to America was challenging, but ultimately rewarding--especially when Dean's father, Greg, attained a sales position for wholesale jewelry components company in New York. Dean was only ten at the time, but this is when his familiarity with the art of jewelry making started. Becoming quickly successful, Greg decided to continue his luck in the industry, and in 2003, used his experience and knowledge to relocate to fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada and start his own business. Dean began working under his father, and with his guidance and knowledge of the industry, began designing and styling his own unique pieces. His infatuation with jewelry grew, and everything else naturally fell into place. "It has been my dream to create my own jewelry line for years now," he shared, "I am very excited to share my collection with the public."
Dean has lived in many places in his young life. From Cape Town, South Africa, to Greenwhich and Ridgefield, Connecticut, Daytona Beach, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and Santa Cruz, California. Dean has managed to take in the liveliness and customs from each of these places and merge them into his work. The relationships he made and experiences that he had in each of these towns has influenced his style tremendously, and educated him in ways he never thought possible. "Traveling is my favorite pastime," he is often overheard saying. "My inspirations and creations are ever evolving, mostly due to my immersion into new cultures and traditions."
Dean's passions involve: jewelry making, photography, film, painting, making clothes, graphic design, snowboarding, riding bicycles, and skateboarding. Everything he creates is, in some way, influenced by his love for the above activities.
