Jeff Deegan Design creates distinctive, sophisticated buckles with lasting quality which are the hallmarks of his reputation. Jeff’s introduction to sculpture began with the design and shaping of surfboards. This early introduction to form and proportion became the foundation for his eventual training in silversmithing.
In 1978, while managing a large jewelry firm, Jeff designed his first buckle which lead to the founding of his company in August, 1980. Inspiration for Jeff’s collection comes from nature and iconic symbols. Jeff makes each original model by carving directly in wax or metal, bringing his drawings to life with meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship.
