A Gardener's Delight

Short of showing up to a dinner party in a torn up t-shirt and soil-stained gloves, gardeners don't have a lot of ways of showing their passion in a more elegant setting. Now, though, anyone with a green thumb can tell the world about it subtly and stylishly with these miniature trowel and fork earrings designed by Debbie Howe. Handmade entirely of sterling silver, these pieces are just the right touch to a dashing outfit and come in a unique gift box. Handmade in New York.

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.

    Comments about TROWEL AND FORK EARRINGS:

    Like many "Uncommongoods" customers, I like unusual and unique items. Although I'm not and avid gardener, I do love working in my yard, and when I saw these unusual and beautiful earrings, I had to have them. They are wonderfully made and the silver shines. I hope that Uncommongoods" will add to their collection of unusual/unique earrings. I also received the earrings in record time.
