Deborah Bushinski has been designing and creating birch jewelry for over 30 years. All of the current techniques that she uses have been developed by her during this time.In the beginning the jewelry was an extension of the painting she was doing, and her contribution to fashion, an area that always held Deborah's interest. During her years as a fine art studio painter and art wear clothing designer living in the Northern Minnesota woodlands, she spent time in the wild studying natural form. From there her design sensibility was honed. It is all about texture, color and composition; as each piece of jewelry is crafted with the immediacy of putting paint on canvas.
