Deb has always had a fascination of natural objects. She has been collecting various “finds” since she could walk. Special rocks of multiple size and variety have found their way into her pockets, pack, trunk and the back of the truck.
In 1997 the jewellery line, “by Jona! Bridge Jewellery” was in 53 stores across Canada, numerous traded and craft shows. Specializing in jewellery created from semi-precious gems and incorporating metals with hypo-allergenic properties such as 92.5 SS Sterling Silver and 14/20 Gold-Filled. Bridging the gap between fine gold smith and costume jewellery.
After an extended illness Deb returned to her interest in horticulture and became a Certified Horticultural Technician specializing in the commercial growth of Roses.
Her love of jewellery was never extinguished and in 2018, two Canadian trademarks were approved, and GemRapture Jewellery was created. In 2019 a Certification of Jewellery Skills was achieved from Alberta University of the Arts. Now in 2020 the website GemRapture Jewellery has been launched. Incorporating her love of gemstones with a new fascination of metal smithing, visit us at www.gemrapture.ca.
