Brooklyn Designer of the Month: Debbie Tuch of Glitterlimes

Trunk Show, February 9, 12–5 p.m.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we are delighted to feature designer Debbie Tuch, owner of North Brooklyn’s Glitterlimes. Tuch’s jewelry line features items 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. Tuch pursues her long-time fascination with both the natural and the fantastic by transforming edible items into wearable jewels.

Throughout the years, Debbie and her scouts have traveled the world, looking for candies and fruits in Barcelona, Japan, Brazil, England, France, and beyond. The fruits she has transformed include every citrus imaginable, as well as exotic fruits such as kiwano melon, lotus root, starfruit, and persimmons. Though the jewels are water resistant, they are best if stored in a dry place.
