I just finished my last show of the year and I'd like to take a moment to say "THANK YOU" to all those who shopped my booth at Make It! The Handmade Revolution last week and at the Krafted Market today. Your show of support for local business is amazing and appreciated. It makes it all worth while and I look forward to seeing you next year.

It was so nice to talk with returning customers and to meet new ones this weekend at the Holiday Bazaar. I would like to thank everyone for their support of my artful journey and to let you know I am truly grateful for being able to "do what I love" and having amazing customers who "love what I do".

It's been awhile since I've pulled out my enamels but today I did and used one of the new red liquid enamels for Sgraffito. Very happy with the deep textures with squiggles and dots. I have lots of new colors to try out and can't wait to try them all. #enamel #torchfired #liquidenamel #sgraffito #heart #pendant #debVdesigns

Good morning everyone. While it rained over the weekend I had a little quality time in the studio and got to use a few of the stamps I won from Danny Wade. For these stamped soldered earrings, I used two of the stamps.

TIZ THE SEASON to Buy / Support Local ♥ ARE YOU READY? ♥ If you haven't started your holiday shopping - IT'S TIME. Time to start making your list. ♥ WHERE TO SHOP? ♥ Are you tired of big box stores? If you're more interested in unique quality hand made items and want to SHOP / SUPPORT LOCAL, then the Holiday Art and Craft Markets are a dream come true. There are so many talented artisans and they are excited to showcase their creativity at the Local Holiday Markets. ♥ THE ARTIST FROM WITHIN debVdesigns ♥ As an Artist, I've been perfecting my jewelry skills for the past 6 years now and do confess I still get excited with the process. Fabricating a piece of jewelry from nothing more than sheet metal and wire (in most cases), is very rewarding. I love technique and textures and seeing how something is transformed in front of my eyes into wearable art. Having my own studio allows me to cut my own metal shapes, finishing them to a smooth finish so I can forge, texture, enamel, solder, etch, antique or whatever technique is needed to complete the piece on my workbench. ♥ FOR THE WOMAN ON YOUR LIST (yourself included) ♥ Choose from a collection of handmade earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets and rings to adorn your beautiful self. EARRINGS are one of the most popular items bought as gifts for other people and let me tell you, "I LOVE TO MAKE EARRINGS". You'll find a great selection of materials and styles to choose from with sterling silver earwires. ♥ FOR THE MAN ON YOUR LIST ♥ I have not forgotten about the men and my own DH loves wearing #chainmail (#chainmaille) bracelets. They are available in sterling silver, stainless steel, copper, aluminium and brass in sizes for both men and women. ♥ SHOPPING / SUPPORTING LOCAL ♥ Shopping local does so much for your community. It keeps the money flowing locally and helps the Small-Business Owners and Entrepreneurs. ♥ ART & CRAFT MARKETS for the 2015 HOLIDAY SEASON ♥ Here's a list of markets I'll be attending over the holiday season. Holiday Bazaar - November 21 - 22 (I'll only be there he first weekend) Make It! The Handmade Revolution - December 3 - 6 Krafted Market - December 13th #debVdesigns #jewelry #jewellery #Surrey #Cloverdale #Langley #fortLangley #NorthVan #NorthVancouver #Vancouver #PNE #HolidayBazaar #MakeItVancouver #makie #KraftedMarket

I've joined in a Meetup Group called Fraser Valley Social Media run by Jonathan Christian of #MakeStuffHappen and last night he hosted #SteveDotto of Dotto Tech as the guest speaker. It was a meetup full of valuable information. I've been watching Steve Dotto since his TV show Dotto Cafe back in the day. He's funny, warm, engaging and giving with all the knowledge he has about social medial. Thanks for the great meetup.

I found a few new agate cabochons at the FVBS over the weekend. I managed to get to my studio very late this afternoon to play with one of them. It'll be interesting to see how different each one turns out. #debvdesigns #agates #jewelry #cloverdalebc #surreybc #richmond #vancouver #fraservalley

I just had to make earrings that would go well with the FWP necklace I just posted a video on. I think they are the perfect match.

What a difference 3 years makes in the stuido. Here's a photo taken 3 years ago. I no longer have wall space to hang pictures and my available floor space has been taken up by a jewelers bench, shelves for hammers and so much more. Love Love Love it. Wish my cold would go away so I could get in there and get busy.

Recycling and found objects are a fun way to be creative. I took apart a keurig pod to see what I could recycle vs sending the whol pod to the landfill. I found an interesting plastic piece on the inside so I just had to save it to see how they would work with copper in the hydraulic press. Needless to say, they embossed the metal with the design and are now dangling below a pair of beautiful SRA lampwork beads. #debVdesigns
