Debora grew up in a family of artists and craftsmen and has been interested in art and design from an early age. Her mother was an art teacher and painter, her father is a wood worker, and her Grandfather was a violin maker.
Debora first became interested in making jewelry after visiting a jeweler in his studio in Florence, Italy. Although she had a full-time career in federal law enforcement, her interest in precious metal and gemstones continued to grow. Her search for classes led her to the Craft Guild of Dallas, where she has taken numerous classes and workshops for the past 11 years. Now retired from law enforcement, Debora works at home in her studio and sells her jewelry at various shows in the Dallas area.
