I thought I should introduce myself.
My name is Deb Terilli , I live in West Greenwich, R.I. With my husband and two dogs and my cat Ben. We are both retired at our longtime jobs, me a nurse, my husband, a musician. We enjoy our time being home on our 18 acres in the country, gardening , walking and just being.
I took up jewelry making over 10 years ago as a way to chill after a stressful day at work. I loved oncology infusion nursing so much, but it often followed me home and jewelry making just gave me the release I needed.
Over the years, my work as evolved from basic beadings, to vintage repurposing, to now silversmithing. I still love working with old copper, and vintage beads. But learning a new still with metalsmithing has been amazing. Creating pieces that other will love as much as me is my goal!
Now I’m also learning enameling, and hope to add some pieces and incorporate it into my design.
I love doing local art shows, and this year, I’ll be trying my hand in some new adventures. I’m going to Rhinbeck NY, Massachusetts, and even Connecticut this season! I’ll be listing my schedule in my schedule section. Hope to see you at soon!
