Debra's handmade sterling silver pieces are inlaid with colorful accents of dichroic glass, beads, pearls and gold, set in a polymer matrix. Naturally colored sands such as black sand from Iceland, Olivine sand from Hawaii and white sand from Jamaica are also set in to accent the work.
She says her work is inspired by the intimacy of handling small personal artifacts and giving them new life in jewelry.
