In the past decade, Dean Harris has gone from fledgling jewelry designer to an award winner. Now he’s taking his business to another level with a deal with Target and expansion into e-commerce.
Harris — who is known for creating organic jewelry combining traditional gemstones such as rough-hewn tourmalines and diamonds with unexpected materials like fossilized pinecones and ammonites coated in pyrite — sells his fine jewelry to stores such as Barneys New York, Mario’s in Seattle, Jeffrey in New York and Max’s three locations in Colorado. The line for Target is not a departure aesthetically for Harris, but is a new price point for the New York-based designer.
