Valley Girl's Deborah Foreman still truly dazzling in newest venture
Eighties fans are seeing Deborah Foreman everywhere these days. The star of Valley Girl and My Chauffeur has been out and about, hitting fan conventions all over the country.
Now the former actress-turned-pilates-aficionado-turned-life coach has a side business as well: hand-crafted jewelry. Her company is called Pearl of Wisdom Jewels, and so far it's been a big hit.
"I have received nothing but love on this new business venture from family and friends," Debbie told me recently via e-mail. "Most of my clients have been from here on Facebook and it has been their word of mouth that continues to make my jewelry empire grow."
If you follow her on Facebook, you've no doubt seen photos of her creations. I asked her where the inspiration came from.
"At the end of September this year I broke apart an ugly gemstone necklace I had and made a bracelet and by Oct. 3 it was my first bracelet to sell," she said. "It then made me think I could actually start a business making handmade gemstone jewelry that had awesome meaning."
"I just turned 50 years old and started a new business," she says. "Life is awesomely good right now."
If you want to catch Debbie in person, plan on heading to the Blood at the Beach convention in Virginia Beach this coming April, she says. And stay tuned for more appearances in 2013.
