Since 1996, Debbie Tuch has designed and cultivated a world of jewelry that showcases the beauty in the foods we eat. With just a lime and some glittery resin, it began and has grown throughout the years as she has glittered countless local and international finds.
Following her BFA at RISD, Debbie balanced a fine jewelry line along with Glitterlimes. Around 2007, Glitterlimes began to be Debbie's primary focus and it has grown ever since with new fruits and candies added to her line every year. After 16 years in California, Glitterlimes now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Her first year in New York, Debbie designed and decorated the legendary Christmas Tree in Lincoln Square, and the second winter brought her line to Barney's for Lady Gaga's Workshop. Keep in touch to see what we do next! Some of the snacks she dries include, many citrus varieties (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. Debbie 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. Please do not ingest!
