“Techno Lazer Cufff” by Debbie Mostel



Courage and confidence, striking design and simplicity of materials give Debbie Mostel’s jewelry an eternal quality she has long been noted for. Silver and gold, glass rods and globes and yes, intricate pieces from computer parts create sensual, organic, statement-making pop-art jewelry designed with the future in mind.

Debbie Lee Mostel, BFA California College of the Arts and Pratt Institute in New York, was trained by master goldsmith, Ellen Broker, and master silversmith, Hans Christensen, of Copenhagen, Denmark. Early in her career, after a stint with Tiffany’s, Mostel formed her own company. Her work in the wholesale jewelry business brought her acclaim when her designs were carried by Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Ave.  Debbie’s jewelry was also seen in Richard Avedon’s fashion photographs.

Mostel’s work has been compared with illustrious designer Robert Lee Morris who came up during the same era as Mostel. Both designers have been influenced by the forms they find in nature and their interest in sculpting. Both love the feel and look of silver and perhaps one difference may be in the stunning simplicity of Mostel’s designs.



"Joyful Universe" by Debbie Mostel

“Joyful Universe” by Debbie Mostel


“Joyful Universe” will be on display at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County from Dec 16th–Feb 10th.  Debbie tells The Rickie Report, ” Upon creating this piece what occurs to me most profoundly is the beautiful planet we live on. Even with its changing political boundaries, ecological uncertainty, and polluted waterways our planet is a miracle in our Universe. I am A Science based thinker/Designer/artist who sees the blessings and wonders in every drop of water and behind every blade of grass. I don’t mean to get too sappy, but I do feel passionately connected to our Earth. Sadly, too many humans today are just out of touch with their home​.”
