As I've been getting more involved in the crafting community on DA, I've met some incredibly talented artists. One of these artists is Gem Fay/
, a wood burning artist who's as brilliant as she is generous. As part of a promotion Gem made me two beautiful gifts:
The pendent is a Hawaiian owl, a pueo, and the tag is a Hawaiian sea turtle. They were both custom made for me after Gem looked at my gallery and saw that I'm from Hawaii, and both of these animals are very special to me. In exchange for her generosity and kindness the least I could do is feature some of her gorgous work here:
And I just can't do a feature without mentioning one of the coolest things I've ever seen an artist do: her Book Dragon project. Gem made these incredible dragon book marks and left them in public places for people to stumble upon. I can just picture how I would have felt if I came across something as magical as this back when I were a little kid. It would have been one of the most precious items I owned. It still would be today.
