As a food jewelry pioneer, Debbie Tuch has designed and cultivated a world of jewelry that showcases the beauty in many of our favorite foods. Since 1996, with a lime and some glittery resin, we have grown, glittering countless local and international finds.
Following her BFA in Jewelry and Metals at Rhode Island School of Design, Debbie created Glitterlimes, a jewelry line made from fresh slices of real fruits and candy and snacks from around the world. All the food is preserved then filled or coated with glitter resin. After 16 years of the California fun, Glitterlimes now is glittering New York, with a studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Her first year in New York, Debbie designed and decoratee the legendary Christmas Tree in Lincoln Square, and the second winter brought her glitters to Barney's for Lady Gaga's Workshop. Keep in touch to see what we do next! There are new items added to the line each year. Some of the fruits and nuts she dries include, every citrus imaginable (3-4 types of limes, lemons, oranges, blood oranges, pomellos) and other exotic fruits such as, kiwano melon, lotus root, starfruit dragon fruit peanuts, pecans, walnuts and persimmons. Every piece is sealed with a self-made glitter resin. Tuch fully preserves the natural structure of the fruit, then adds an exciting glow to both decorate and reinforce it. While the jewels are water resistant, they are best if stored in a dry place. Due to their organic properties some fruits may darken or lighten, but will remain beautiful, shiny and glittery.
