Debbie Howe

Debbie Howe specializes in jewelry that reflects the vocation or avocation of the wearer. This seriously fun jewelry all started in 1990 when she made her chef-husband a gold knife pin for Valentine's Day. From that first pin have evolved many items for the chef, the gardener and the gourmet.

A distinguishing feature of her jewelry is the attention to detail. Each piece is meticulously handmade in the USA of sterling silver. Some pieces employ 18k or gemstone details to achieve a precise miniature replica of a particular tool or symbol.

Debbie Howe has an MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz. She also attended the Provincetown Art Association Museum School, as a scholarship student, and was a resident at the prestigious artist's colony Yaddo, in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Her jewelry has been featured in many publications including Bon Appetit, The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times and The Dallas Morning News. She lives in Rhinebeck, NY with her husband and daughter.

      I saw a Dr. wearing this on his lab coat. He told me he got at uncommon goods. My niece just graduated from nursing school and I thought it would be a great gift. I was right, she really liked it & so did others. There will be more new nurses ordering. The piece looks classy!!

                    This is a great little pin. There is quality workmanship and attention to details. I have loved my first one and got this as a replacement just in case I loose the first one.

                          I bought this pin for my boyfriend, who is a doctor. He was delighted when he opened the box! The pin is slightly more delicate than I thought it would be from the photo, but still beautifully detailed and a wonderful gift for the medical professional. I ordered gift boxing, but it wasn't really necessary because the pin comes in an attractive, circular silver box with a biography of the artist on the back; this circular box is then put in an Uncommon Goods bag made from recycled T-shirts. Recommended!
