Roots Metals is the creative child of Debbie, an artist and jeweler based out of Los Angeles. Its pieces, inspired by Jewish, Middle Eastern, and Latin American motifs, pay homage to Debbie’s cultures and heritage and to her homes of Israel and Costa Rica.
Although Debbie has been working with metal for nearly five years now, the idea for Roots Metals was born during a trip to India with her sister. Inspired by the incredible colors, views, smells, cultures, sounds, tastes, languages, and textures around her, Debbie felt compelled to examine her own cultures and upbringing in her creative work.
In addition to making jewelry, Debbie is an educator on antisemitism and mental health. For exclusive antisemitism and Jewish history content, you can join Debbie's Patreon here.
