Feature with Debger Designs + 5 Giveaways


I met Debbie van Tonder owner of Debger Designs in November 2009 in the Etsy forums, she was like all new shop owners and was anxiously waiting for her first sale, we got to chatting and we have kept in touch ever since. Debbie makes beautiful beaded woven bracelets and she did not have to wait long for her first sale.
She soon started to get enquiries for her patterns which at the time she never offered in her shop but by Febuary 2010 she listed her first pattern and has not looked back since
 She opened a second shop in August 2010, with fun beading patterns for young people interested in learning beading techniques but wanting something different to grandma’s flowers, these are exclusively Peyote patterns. (Peyote is a beading stitch, which is woven by hand). http://www.http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peyote_stitch
.

Again she started receiving several enquiries for her patterns to become available in Loom and so Loom Tomb was born.

www.etsy.com/people/LoomTomb.






Both Debbie and her daughter, whose favourite sport is gymnastics, are both qualified gymnastic judges and have made many trips around the country judging events.

Debbie was recently approached by the editor of Perlan Poesie magazine and was asked to make an exclusive bracelet for them, which will be available on June 10th. It doesn't get any better than that, congratulations Debbie.



Everyone loves a success story and this certainly is a good example of one. Well done Debbie and thanks so much for your generous giveaway. Finally her pet Nibbles wanted to get in the picture so here she is. Good girl Nibbles!!!


Debbie is going to giveaway 5 patterns of her bracelets, which you can choose, from either of her shops.

Wow! Looks like I am the first to comment here.

Ok, I am following your blog

GrandmaMarilyn said...

went to her peyote shop because I love doing peyote best. I have loved so many of her patterns it was so hard to choose. So a name of a pattern jumped out at me as it is the name of my daughter, Angelique. I am picking that one.

Debbie I love all your bracelets. Your bracelets aren't just bracelets. They are ART. They are a expression of you that reflect you. If that makes since.
Anyone can make a bracelet but you make it come alive.

Krishenka said...

Could not agree more with you Roxann. Did you find a pattern that you would perhaps like to win?
