Jet of the Day: StoutDG2





Peacock Pearl Wire Wrapped Sterling Necklace

Today, our Jet of the Day  is Debbie of DG Designs and I am so happy to feature her fun, fantastical, whimsical handmade jewelry. Debbie and I are  fellow Jersey Girls. (Erase those images of the girls from the Jersey Shore, please).

Diamond Shaped Lampwork Bead Earring
I am amazed at this fact: Debbie took one two-hour course which started her in jewelry making! The jewelry she makes would have me believing she is a life long jewelry artist.

It is obvious to me that Debbie has a creative soul. That and a fierce obsession with lampwork beads  from which she creates the crazy beautiful handmade earrings, bracelets, and necklaces you will see here today.

Her designs all have a certain quality, a little something unexpected added that makes her jewelry stand out from the rest. I love the added crystal and lampwork beads that coordinate perfectly with this gorgeous pendant, and add a unique sparkle to the sterling chain below.

Her designs are bursting with color and whimsey. Perfect for everyday, yet many pieces have plenty of sparkle for special occasions. 
 













And speaking of whimsey, I love her sliders!
Large hole lampwork beads, crystal, and  double ring sterling silver beads move freely along the chain. The colors are pale and iridescent, yet the movement draws your eyes to it.

This spectacular hand-wired necklace reminds me of a dreamy beach in an exotic local, (not the Jersey Shore). It is just the prettiest combination and placement of lampwork beads I have seen.

Pink Organic Lampwork Bead and Sterling Silver Necklace

What a combination! See how the jade green, seafoam, sage, mint, and basil greens work together so flawlessly. 
Into the Forest-Lampwork and Sterling Bracelet
 Debbie's handmade earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are one of a kind, full of colors and textures. Mix and match the brilliant designs and wear them everyday.
