Deb has always had a deep love of working and crating with her hands.
While raising her two daughters with her husband, Steve, she worked as a preschool teacher, was a part time puppeteer and started making jewelry for friends and family after studying at the New Hampshire Institute of Arts.
Upon retiring from teaching, Deb took her passion for creating jewelry to a new level, selling her work in boutiques throughout Florida and New Hampshire, including the Currier Museum of Art.
The sensitive integration of form, texture and color plays an integral part in Deb’s fresh designs, lending a unique and distinctive style to her custom wire jewelry. Her use of wire is inspired by her love and appreciation of the ever-flowing lines found in nature.
Moved by the famous story of Modoc the elephant, Deb now donates a percentage of every sale to help orphaned baby elephants via the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.
She has scaled back her business now and currently only sells her work at Valley Artisans.
Deb lives in Henniker and has been a member Valley Artisans member since 2008.
