May Came Home is a vintage-inspired collection of statement pendants, signet rings and charm earrings with colorful, hand-painted resin enamel details. Playful animals and geometric shapes in a kaleidoscope of color offer a touch of whimsy to your classic jewelry favorites.
The May Came Home collection is informed by the extensive and diverse design background of creator Deborah Halperin. Born and raised in Manhattan, Deborah has made New York City her classroom—with studies at FIT and a Master’s Degree from Pratt Institute—and her muse. She is influenced by the city’s rich history, museums and street life and cites the collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as some of her greatest sources of inspiration.
Having worked with such iconic brands as Robert Lee Morris, Christopher Walling and Tiffany and Co., Deborah was motivated to begin her own collection. Deborah Halperin Jewelry Design was quickly established, sold at Barney’s and featured in Glamour and W Magazine. After a sabbatical from her eponymous line to further her formal education and expand her repertoire designing for such notable names as Barnes and Noble and Carnegie Hall, Deborah has returned to jewelry design with the reimagined brand, May Came Home.
Inspired by the e.e. cummings poem, “maggie, millie, molly and may,” which celebrates the beauty and wonder to behold in a small object, like that of the perfect piece of jewelry.
"may came home with a smooth round stone,
as small as the world and as large as alone,
For whatever we find, like a you or a me,
it's always ourselves that we find at the sea."
