Artist Bio
Deborah Peters, Jewelry Designer
Falmouth, Maine
 
“The thing I love most about creating jewelry is learning different techniques and skills to incorporate into my designs.  I have an almost overwhelming desire to learn new techniques.  I could never get bored with jewelry making.  It allows me to be as creative as I want.  I love being able to take a pile of beads and transform it into something beautiful.  Making jewelry helps me relax and allows me the opportunity to express myself while being able to stay at home with my children.”
 
From playing bass guitar and clarinet, to hair and make-up design, Deborah has always had a certain affinity for many facets of the arts.  Deborah’s passion for bead weaving began six years ago after receiving a hand-beaded bracelet her aunt made for her.  Since then, she has been devoted to mastering new techniques and stitches.  Among her favorite stitches to work with are peyote and right angle weave.
 
In 2008, Deborah partnered with a close friend to form a business called Absolutely Beadiful!  This allowed her to showcase her jewelry online, as well as offer custom designs.  In addition to creating jewelry to sell, Deborah also enjoys teaching her craft and teaches a variety of techniques for all skill levels at Full Circle Artisan Gallery in Cornish, Maine.
 

Deborah frequently donates her work to help support local non-profit organizations including the Falmouth Public Library, Casco Bay YMCA, The Falmouth PTO and the Falmouth Education Foundation.
