Thank you, Donna, of Etsy's dzfantasy
First of all, a BIG thank you to Donna, of the Etsy dzfantasy shop, for the absolutely lovely blog feature she's done on my Etsy shop!! Please visit her blog to see what a super job she's done:

After you've done that, you must stroll through Donna's Etsy shop that's packed full of whimiscal but extremely well done fiber artwork that even includes jewelry!
Donna has been doing fiber work for years, and she designs and draws all of her own patterns. She's a true artist in every sense of the word!
I just love the faces on her Fairies and Divas, some of which are pins, and others dolls and miniature sculpture. I adore this jewelry diva - doesn't she epitomize so many of us who are still little girls, (inside), who like to play dress-up in our everyday lives?!
At first glance, I wondered where Donna gets her porcelain doll faces. Then I discovered that she hand paints each and every one on silk!! In savoring them, I see traces of celebrity, (and sometimes familiar everyday faces we see in friends and strangers), in many of them! For me, this is part of their appeal.
On top of the wonderful sculpure work Donna does, she also works miracles with fiber when it comes to making jewelry. Donna makes fiber necklaces and earrings, and I've never seen anything like these earrings. Take a close look - the colorful "beads" are actually knitted or needleworked fiber/yarn!!! Just incredible...
