Deb Brilla, Jewelry Artist

Ardmore, Pennsylvania

When Deb was quite little she loved to look up into the sky and see whirly gigs, berries, and leaves dancing a quiet rhythm down to the earth. In hopes of creating a more interesting pattern, Deb popped these items into her mouth and cracked them with her teeth and performed “special surgery” with petals, budding twigs, and quarry stones. The new patterns did not appear…at least not then; but what she started to think about was the implicit order of things. In other words, ART.
