IF YOU DIDN’T FIND THE JEWELRY YOU WANTED, THAT’S BECAUSE DEBRA HASN’T CREATED IT YET!”
Here is some interesting background information about Debra Joy Peisner!
At age 16, Debra Joy designed pheasant and peacock feather jewelry with colorful macramé and beads. The “Out Of Site Shop” in St. Petersburg, Florida and several other boutiques carried her work. Pictured here are photos of her early jewelry creations that were for sale when she was a teen.
All of a sudden feather jewelry was seen in Gayfers, Maas Bros and Burdines. She thought she was so totally unique and no one else in the entire universe had ever created feather jewelry. Hence her creativity was a bit stifled. In the mid 80’s and early 90’s Debra’s fascination with the clay really evolved. Her training at Crealdi in Winter Park, Winter Park Jewelry Fabrication and UCF helped Debra evolve into the artisan she is today.
Her happiness transferred to the clay with the human element. Debra created clay butterflies smiling, the banana man in his chariot plus many clay sculptures including wheel thrown vases. Turquoise and different cabochons were pressed in the clay, while it was wet. They were then glued in after the glaze firing.
For several years Debra apprenticed with the late great Judaic Sculptor and Metal smith “Estelle Tasman.” Assisting with mold making, creating ceramic glazes, soldering metal sculptures and sketching to scale, Debra was able to help Estelle with fabrication techniques.
While Estelle Tasman passed in 1995, her Judaic sculptures and metal work can still be admired in fine art galleries in New York, Colorado and Tucson. Estelle Tasman will always be missed. Estelle’s magnetizing personality and love for Judaism lives on in her sculptures.
During a wonderful trip to the wine country in Napa Valley with her handsome husband Bruce, a large bucket of turquoise stones took Debra’s interest. She brought back with her fond memories of a relaxing vacation with her honey and a large amount of turquoise stones. Debra couldn’t wait to cut, shape and polish the stones.
Her husband mentioned that “At some point you might need to make the choice between working with the clay or jewelry.” Once again, he was right. Lots of years of classes, work shops and a “Jewelers Certification” evolved a wonderful transition regarding a love for metal and stones.
Debra’s clay expertise was a real asset and now she transforms wax models into mini sculptures casted in silver and gold. She works diligently doing jewelry repairs, custom orders and increasing her inventory at her North Tampa studio.
First and foremost, Debra firmly believes it’s important to be the best friend to her wonderful husband. As a proud mother of her only son Chad, and a grandmother of five adorable grand children, Debra still finds time for jewelry fabrication!
