You'll find a very diverse line of jewelry creations when you visit DebrasDivineDesigns. I use many traditional and some not so common supply items and components to create. The usual metals - silver, gold filled, copper ... are the basis for what I make. I do my best to use recycled metal parts to make my metal jewelry and findings, and I spice up my jewelry with fused glass, a large assortment of beads and stones, fiber, leather, feathers - and real butterfly wings!
My specialty is Butterfly Wing jewelry. I'm one of the original artisans to offer this type of jewelry on Etsy, and have worked very hard to perfect my own methods and techniques, resulting in a fantastic piece of unique jewelry people love to wear!
|Real Viceroy Butterfly Necklace|
This jewelry is amazing. People love it!
Spring and Summer are the perfect time to show off your real butterfly jewelry. This nature inspired line of unique butterfly rings, butterfly wing earrings and bracelets is naturally colorful and a nice fashion accent!
|Genuine Dotted Glory Butterfly Wing Ring|
I am heavily inspired by nature, the flight of a butterfly, the trail of a vine, the color in flowers, the ripples in water, the change in leaves. Love the organic feel of it all!
I am mostly self taught, but watch a lot of online tutorials and have had basic classes in jewelry soldering, patinas and stained glass.
|Chiseled Copper Fan Earrings|
I had everyone make pendants or pins using broken watch parts and jewelry pieces. It was a hit and I was asked to create some jewelry for someone in the group - to sell for me.
I'm working on my silversmithing and stone setting skills; there are no classes near me, so I'm doing it by practice, videos and reading. I just love banging and torching metal, and am loving my tools - my soldering iron, my torch and my hammers are all important ... I can't pick just one. I'm having so much fun! I just learned how to enamel metal with a torch ...!
