Deb Karash Jewelry

We get a kick out of being surprised.
So, we were pleasantly surprised when we
discovered that jewelry made by
Deb Karash features the
    fusing of colored pencil on metal.



Drawing with colored pencils on a copper base,
using several shades to create each vibrant design,
then combining that piece with sterling silver
 results in delightful jewelry
with depth and texture.




Each new layer of nuanced color adds depth
and each layer of metal provides richly
textured dimension.



 
 
Fusing creative design with excellent
metalsmithing skills is just the beginning
of this multi-layered process.
Fusing multiple layers of pencil and patina
creates surprising and wonderful
jewelry that inspires us.
 
Does all of this inspire you?
Let us know what you think!
