My studio's humble beginnings 3 years ago.

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 & Found Objects in jewelry

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

What's in a name?

If you had to name a piece of jewelry WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT? The handmade steel chain finished the necklace beautifully and showcases the bezeled Pearl and Red Jasper stone. Rustic, earthy open armed goddess accepting positive energy from the universe. #debVdesigns #jewelry #jewellery #custom #oneOFaKind

I tried my hand at zentangle today with Aleesha of Tangle Me This.

It was my first time ever and it took approximately 30 minutes but it only felt like 5 or 10

We all got into the zone - here's a photo of our combined efforts.

Bet you can't guess which one's mine.
