About Deborah Kelly
I grew up on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere Oregon. Met and married my Husband before going to OSU and getting a BS in Apparel Design in 2002.
I started out making beaded jewelry in my early teen years. Both free hand and on a loom.
Year after graduating I moved to MO and started making cosmetics and continued experimenting in soap making which I started in college.
During my years in MO I started getting into baking and did events as a self employed concession stand vendor. I really did love my cotton candy machine. At events I did more then just cotton candy. I had a 2 head espresso machine, hot dog steamer, made hard candy to sell, and did 21 flavors of snow cones.
While doing all of that I also learned to fix my own vehicles because when I did take them to a mechanic I had to fix them when I got them back.
After our 3rd child was born in 2010 we lost our house and hit the road in an RV.
One winter we ended up in Quartzsite AZ where I started making wire jewelry.
Since then I have started designing wire jewelry, became an instructor at the gem club in Quartzsite. Started teaching independent jewelry making classes. Writing and selling tutorials for jewelry making.
In the summer I am a property locator, photographer and videographer.
I also spend my summer working on my own project to give back to the universe by making and giving away my jewelry because everyone needs something pretty.
