Jewelry Designer Spotlight: Deb Fanelli

Beadworks is proud to support our customers and their endeavors. We will like to take a moment to acknowledge the great accomplishments of one of our talented customers. Deb Fanelli is a Vermont based jewelry designer and founder of “From The Heart Studios”. She has always had a passion for wood, metal and the art of jewelry making. Deb incorporates many beautiful gemstones into her piece, as well as her own, metalsmith work.

Being such a talented and creative individual, Deb dabbles into many different artistic fields. After earning her B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1981, and then her M.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design in 1983, Deb spent many years making sculptural installations and teaching design. Her sculptural installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the Southeastern US.

In the early 90’s, Deb’s love for wood kicked in. Eventually, she developed her own line called “FanelliWare”, which consisted of sculptural wood utensils and carved bowls. Deb spent 13 amazing years on the road displaying and selling her work.

Today, Deb is the proud owner of her own jewelry line, which you can view and purchase on her direct website. You can also follow her Facebook page for updates. Naturally, Deb has an amazing eye for her jewelry designs and picking out the best gemstones. Despite just recently adding the art of metalsmith work into her creative passion, she has developed a great talent for it and often utilize these skills in her bangles, pendants, earrings, and more. Overall, each jewelry design is truly a unique, handmade piece of work.

All in all, Beadworks is proud to support Deb Fanelli in all of her life accomplishments. We wish her the very best!
