Desersa Designs Jewelry is made by Ashley McDermott. Ashley is a self-taught Jewelry Artist from Franklin, Massachusetts (a small town south of Boston). Always being a creative person at heart, she searched for an outlet to express her creativity - making everything from furniture to paintings, and finally - to creating Jewelry - where she fell in love with the art and expression of it all. Learning everything from simple bead stringing to complicated beadweaving and chainmaille techniques she uses her knowledge to create awe inspiring pieces of wearable art. Every piece is carefully and painstakingly created by hand, with perfection and longevity in mind. When you purchase Jewelry, either for yourself or a loved one, it should last forever and become something that can be handed down through the generations.
