Storybeader’s craft is jewelry designing; primarily working with natural stones, and gemstones, which are highlighted by one of the many beautiful pendants her beads showcase. What makes Deb’s necklaces and other pieces unique in design is also her Haiku poems (which she writes herself) which although does not describe the piece it is written for, but gives the reader a sense of the inner artist at work. Haiku is an ancient Japanese art in which the poet/artist tries to inspire mood and emotion through thoughts and imagery; leaving the reader to explore their own experiences and perceptions. Deb describes herself as a “frustrated writer who likes to put words and colors together to make wearable art.”
I have chosen three of my favorite pieces of Storybeader’s jewelry, which truly show her artistic abilities.
