My name is Debbie and I am a jewellery designer living in Yorkshire. I began designing and making jewellery in 2007 and since then have gone on to create Ruby James Jewellery.
As a Holistic therapist and crystal healer, it was my love of crystals and gems that first led me on to a creative path and into designing jewellery. I am completely self taught and all Ruby James jewellery is hand crafted by me. I take pride in the high quality of my work and attention to detail, I believe the gemstones deserve it.
I work with semi precious gems, genuine Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. Everything used in my jewellery is selected by me and I use only components with the highest quality. My designs are all original, and are generally vintage inspired with a touch of modern chic, giving the designs a hint of romantic but understated elegance. Designs are clean and simple, so that they are suitable for wearing for day or evening and for any occassion.
What inspires me.........
I take my inspiration from many things, but I have always loved nature and the natural world. From rainbows to the Northern Lights,to flowers and trees, nature never fails to inspire and amaze me. I am fortunate to live in a rural part of Yorkshire where I am surrounded by inspiration. I adore the English seasons and I also love the idea of the romantic vintage days of times gone by, so this too is a strong influence on my work as well as vintage floral displays. I regularly source inspiration from one of my favouite books, which is Vintage flowers by Vic Brotherson, its packed with inspiring pictures of the most beautiful colourful flowers.
Jewellery has the ability to lift a womans spirits and bring a touch of sunshine to the darkest days. Putting on a simple but quality piece of jewellery can make you feel on top of the world, and can also make a wonderful gift to give. All Ruby James jewellery comes beautifully presented, carefully wrapped in tissue paper and in a luxury pink organza gift bag, each piece comes with a romance card and a complementary jewellery care kit.
With the exception of earrings, all Ruby James jewellery carries a unique "signature" of a tiny faceted genuine ruby gemstone, attached to the jewellery with sterling silver. For earring purchases, the Ruby will be attached to a Signature card.
My designs have been worn by several celebrities including Michelle Collins, Jane McDonald and best selling author and Angel Lady Jacky Newcomb, and have been seen on television and in magazines.
