You will also have an opportunity to meet Deborah on Saturday, May 5th from 10am-2pm. She'll be answering questions about her work and demonstrating the ancient Japanese art of braiding that she uses in these masterpieces.

 Kumihimo - the Japanese art of braiding with cords is believed to have began around 550 A.D. for decorative use in Buddhist religious ceremonies. In the 21st century beads started being incorporated. Deborah's pieces are designed and hand-crafted using a variety of beads and embellishments and woven with materials including satin, leather and silk. Most of the beads are handcrafted in the USA by highly skilled glassblowers using only the finest borosilicate glass that is worked and kiln annealed at a much higher temperatures than ordinary glass, producing a stronger, more durable bead and richer natural colors.

The Artist, Deborah Jassem, has made Tucson her home since 1998. Originally from Hartford, Connecticut she has worked in the non-profit sector as a development professional for over 25 years. She is currently the Director of Philanthropy for Tohono Chul Park.

Please share this with your friends.  The more the merrier!  We look forward to seeing you in the store anytime this week during the trunk show.

See you soon!
