Dev Bennett studied Comparative Literature at Brown University; she discovered metalworking at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her studio is located just outside Boston in Somerville, MA, in the Joy Street Studios building.
Dev enjoys pieces that capture movement, either literally or as an image of flow. The transformation of a heavy, dense thing - metal - into one that moves with the body or molds to its curves, is a challenging project. The surprise of wearing a large, extravagant earring that moves so lightly is part of her attraction to this type of jewelry.
