"I make handmade precious metal contemporary jewellery - from conception to completion, completely by hand. Stunning, urban, organic gold and silver. Chunky rings, wedding rings, and engagement rings. Powerful talismans for a modern age..."
Unusual offbeat designs are created in gold, silver and platinum often set with rare gemstones or diamonds - uncompromising workmanship and supreme attention to detail are Debra's trademarks.
Debra spent many years in Sydney and London studying the art form. Returning to New Zealand in 1997 she quickly gained a reputation as the "new kid on the block" with a style and a "no nonsense" attitude that differed greatly from what was on offer from other jewellers at the time. Juxtaposing rough with smooth, fine with contemporary, Debra Fallowfield has been at the forefront of jewellery in New Zealand for near on 15 years, with work that continually pushes boundaries between contemporary and fine jewellery.
She believes her work is to be worn, adored and adorned - not locked away in a glass case. "Rings are my forte", she says with a smile. "I love working with solid heavy gold and silver gaining textures and forms, yet still always giving the metal a smooth lustrous, sensual finish."
