ArtVenture – Debra Ferrazolli

Debra Ferrazolli

Debra Ferrazolli graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in1972. She has loved designing and making jewelry ever since. She was the head designer for two large jewelry companies until the day her first child was born. When her three children were young, she worked at the dining room table. Unable to use her torch around them, she developed an ability to manipulate wire to enhance vintage glass, abalone, pearl, or semi-precious beads she collected. Deb has continued this technique to create her simple elegant sterling silver or gold-filled jewelry in her workshop at home in North Kingstown. The process and materials she uses inspires endless possibilities.
