D.C.D.K. Jewelry is a place where we sell the Original Wire Wrap Jewelry of Deborah Kelly. D.C.D.K. is just Deborah’s initials since we couldn’t call it D.K. Jewelry unless we wanted a lawsuit from Donna Karan the designer behind The D.K. and D.K.N.Y. brands.
Deborah is married to a wonderful man who writes her bio’s, runs her server, designs her websites (so much quicker and easier since I started using wordpress instead of writing them from scratch) we have been married for 21 years now. We have 3 children, 2 boy and a girl ranging in ages from 8-16 years old.
Deborah started making beaded jewelry freehand and with a beading loom when she was 6. She moved onto other jewelry styles that she was interested in and eventually found her calling with copper wire wrap and wire weave jewelry designs. While she did learn other things like Silversmithing and cutting, polishing and faceting gemstones she prefers to work with wire for its simplicity and the range of designs she can create.
Deborah also has a B.S. in Apparel Design from Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon.
Deborah teaches Creative Wire Wrap classes in Quartzsite, Arizona to about 800 students a year, some of which are themselves wire wire wrap instructors in different parts of the U.S. and Canada.
Currently Deborah makes between 4,000 and 10,000 pieces of jewelry a year that are mostly given away through our private philanthropy that we call “The Free Jewelry Project” 2019 is our 5th year of giving away free jewelry.
Along with DCDK.Jewelry and TheFreeJewelryProject.info we also run WireWrap.Jewelry where we create free Jewelry tutorials of Deborah’s original designs and have class schedules for Deborah’s live in person classes.
If you are a jewelry making buff you may be on mailing lists where you will see some of Deborah’s tutorials sent to you in twice weekly mailings, these are still our designs, they just pay us for the rights to mail them to you one time. We also get a free link from them in Deborah’s Bio and since they are bigger than us, Google likes those links!
This was written by Deborah’s husband Michael Kelly, her beloved Webmaster…. (she’s my “Computer Widow”, which I guess isn’t a thing anymore since everyone is ALWAYS on the computer these days!)
Oh, I forgot to mention, we are starting a Jewelry Affiliate sales program because we suck at sales… If you love our Jewelry there is some great discounts and commissions in it for you!
