Mixed Metal Art Jewelry

Lover of all things earthy, genuine, beautiful and unique, my specialty is mixed metal art jewelry using a variety of mediums and techniques. I’m a metalsmith, silversmith, enamel artist, metal fold forming, etching and so many other styles that I could never get bored.

In 2009, I innocently strolled into a bead show and the spark beneath my wings was ignited. I immediately signed up for a few classes, started researching modern and ancient techniques and that has taken me on the most wonderful journey of exploring this art form and having a serious love affair with mixed metal arts.

There is true pride in being able to fabricate most (if not all) of my designs from sheet metal and wire. I purchase gemstones and beads from various suppliers and gem shows and this year my husband and I joined our local lapidary (rock) club on Vancouver Island. We’re learning to make our own cabochons and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Living on an island surrounded by water gives us an endless supply of rocks to choose from. I hope to add my own cabochons in the near future after I’ve perfected the art form a little more.

I have been designing jewelry since 2009 and I still love it! Creating and sharing jewelry fills my soul.

Welcome to debVdesigns.

My jewelry is handmade from sheet metal and wire by me in the studio. I fabricate as much of the design as possible by cutting and forming the metals then finishing them using modern and ancient techniques I've learned over the years I've been designing.
