Love of Art

I love handmade art and so appreciate all the time and love that goes into each piece. We are now into the New Year (2016) and I am so Grateful for all the artist friends I have made along my journey. I love working with my beads and leathers everyday but I also really enjoy sharing other artists who work so very hard everyday to create a real special piece of handmade art.

My friends at The Deadhead art Alliance Team on Etsy have some stunning art that I would love to share with you today.  Take  a look!
