Hello and welcome to Rudnicki Gems. I’m Deborah Rudnicki Applegate and I live in Tennessee with my husband of 18 years and our four small dogs and two cats.

Hello and welcome to Rudnicki Gems. I’m Deborah Rudnicki Applegate and I live in Tennessee with my husband of 18 years and our four small dogs and two cats.

While I’ve always had some outlets for my creative side, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I discovered a love of jewelry making. In my quest for learning new jewelry-making techniques, I have taken classes; devoured numerous books and magazines on jewelry making (it’s amazing what you can learn from reading); and have accumulated enough tools and workbenches to take over a small bedroom in our home. I’m fortunate to have a husband who is very supportive and encourages me to keep on growing as an artist.

Sterling silver, copper, semi-precious stone and glass beads are the materials I enjoy working with. I love stone beads and wire wrapping cutting and texturing metal, working with a torch, and experimenting with new techniques l. Style-wise, I'm still finding myself, but I seem to be drawn to both rustic/organic designs, as well as classic designs, so you'll find a bit of both in my shop.

I hope you enjoy looking through my shop and please feel free to covo me if you have any questions.
