Deb Brooks has been working with Precious Metal Clay for over 20 years. She was one of the first artists to use PMC to create stunning precious metal jewelry. She is a master craftsman and certified in PMC. Her work is featured in fine art galleries across Nebraska, including the Museum of Nebraska Art. She has numerous awards for her designs.
Her work reflects her love of nature, and she often uses leaves and flower motives. She is particularly inspired when collaborating with natural stones such as Larimar, red creek jasper, amethyst, and Picture Jasper. She handpicks each stone then carefully listens and examines the unique lines and coloring before designing one of a kind setting to enhance each stone's feature. Every piece is one of a kind and unique wearable art.
