Week Three of the Craft Pimp blog ring: Featured artist Donna of Delicate Sparkles

As an occasional user of small beads in my paper crafting I have to take my hat off to Donna for having the patience of a saint. There's something very satisfying about working with beads and it's amazing what you can create with a bit of imagination, something Donna from Delicate Sparkles has in bucket loads. Some of the materials used in Donna's beautiful creations are Austrian Crystals, sourced lampwork glass beads and sterling silver. They really are awe inspiring.
One of the first pieces of jewellery I saw from Donna whilst perusing round the craft pimp forum was her beaded flowers, the skill and time it must take to make one is remarkable. 
I think they're stunning and I'm sure you will too.  I have featured a very small selection of pieces from Donnas collections which I found on her facebook fan page and shop Donna also has her own blog which is a lovely read and where you can find out more about Donna and Delicate Sparkles. Donna's jewellery is also available to buy from Misi .


Thank you for leaving me comments, I love getting them. ~*~Happy Crafting~*~
