About

Gemstones and their histories fascinate me. History fascinates me, period. When I started making rosaries and jewelry, wanting to share gemstone research was inevitable. So, 15 Promises grew with a focus of using metals and gemstones of the Bible in my "Accessories for the Soul." I formed 15 Promises to show the historical tradition of gemstones we may think of as "modern" and for Our Lady's 15 promises she makes to those who recite her rosary.

My design philosophy is rather simple...I love elegance and high quality, but a bit of fun should be found here and there. I don't care to work with plated metals, so I rather stubbornly stick to sterling or Argentium silver and bronze as my favorites, but I sometimes combine nice gemstones with lesser metals to offer a wider price range.

I appreciate your interest in my profile. Please visit again and I love to "visit" with fellow Etsy-ers. Convos are good stuff and feedback is never asked for, but truly appreciated. Blessings, Debbie
