Debra Dresler

From her Minnesota studio and in her frequent travels, artist Debra Dresler scrounges for a collection of "interesting little things" at flea markets, antique stores and junk shops to create her imaginative series of functional art pieces.

"My view of art comes from the beauty and lasting memories of everyday things," Debra says. "Some say life is in the details, I say life and art are in the everyday sacred. I am a believer in the 'ordinary as art'."

Debra uses a variety of materials in her work, from found objects, vintage typewriter keys, children's books, old cameras and discarded game pieces. The goals of her work is to bring "new life to old spirits," to tell a story and to help people make a personal connection to the past.

            It would be nice for the price , if the watch came working. Had to have the battery changed and then it still didn't work, so had to have it cleaned. Was a Birthday gift, so hopefully it reaches the recipient in working order....

              Comments about TELEPHONE CORD WATCH:

              it is really a cute idea and i LOVE original/creative watch designs BUT i'm left wondering why i thought it was a good idea to spend [$]on something that i may not have thought of first, but quite possibly could have made myself. the convenience of sliding watch on/off is great but it does seem as if over-stretching of the strap is more than likely after enough wear.

                  Comments about TELEPHONE CORD WATCH:

                  I'm returning product because the cord strap is too large for me. However, I also do not like the rigidity and bulkiness of the number block.

                    I am always looking for the one of a kind item. This is it! It receives several second looks and then people ask where I found it. It's comfortable on my wrist.

                    I loved the sense of humor but found the watch too wide to wear with other bracelets.
