Deborah Beesley


Deborah Beesley has been creating jewellery for over 20 years. She started when she was looking for a piece of jewellery and just couldn’t find the right thing. Necessity is the mother of invention and so making it herself started her on a whole new journey. Always curious, Deborah has taken various technique classes over the years, finding that it boosts creativity. Deborah’s particular passion is creating with wire and exploring and working with colour, different shapes and textures. It speaks to her and she is passionate about her wearable art.

Deborah has been a member of the Toronto Bead Society (TBS) since 2006 and she joined the TBS Steering Committee in 2016 to volunteer as their Education Coordinator.
