Some Storied Jewelry

Today I'm sharing some very special jewelry, created by a very special lady, Debi. Why is her jewelry so special?  Well, besides the fact that it is simply fabulous looking, each piece has a story, and she loves to tell you about each piece of wearable art and how it came to be.

Debi, like most people who lived in Coastal Alabama and Mississippi, lost most of her belongings to Hurricane Katrina back in 2005.  She had been a collector of vintage costume jewelry, and most of it was ruined. But being a visionary, Debi saw that there was still value in the little jewels...she just needed to give them new life.  She began to deconstruct the pieces and started putting new forms together as she saw them in her mind's eye.  Beautiful new jewelry began to take shape, and before she knew it, she had made many new special pieces.  

I remember admiring Debi's gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces as she wore them to a popular monthly estate sale that we both attend.  I never walked up to her to talk to her about her adornments until a couple of months ago.  I'm so glad I finally did.  

I can not wait for Debi to show her jewelry as a vendor in the market on April 1-2. You will be blown away by their beauty and stories.  Here are some pics of several pieces.

If you like what you see here, you need to attend the market.  She is bringing along quite a show for us.

More information on the market can be found at the website, Tickets may be purchased by clicking on the tab "Tickets" at the top of the homepage.

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Debi sure has some beautiful pieces and I am looking forward to seeing more of it at the market on 4/1.


    1. Yes, Linda, I'm sure her jewelry will be a hit with everyone! I'm anxious to see what she brings, as well. I hope I'm not too busy to shop! I can just see some of her jewelry in my future...
