Friday Friends - Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of Friday Friends.

I truly believe that real friendship is a rare find and that no matter where life takes you, sometimes if you lose touch over the years, you will find each other again for a specific reason.

Meet the divine Del of DELicious Designz and Get Spooned !

This crafty Miss creates new from old by giving spoons a brand new life as wearable art ! She also creates bold bangles and rings. I am slightly addicted to Del's creations - I have three spoon pendants, a necklace, a bangle, two rings ...............

Del and I go back a long way - to high school days in fact and have only reconnected in recent years. I promise Del - no embarrassing high school piccies in this post ! I am so glad we found each other again as I feel we are two like minded artistic souls that can provide inspiration to each other and also we share a very similar sense of dark offbeat humour.

Del encouraged me to start my ETSY store and to join the fabulous DUSTers the Down Under Stream Team - an amazing sellers community for Australian ETSY sellers ! Del and I have done a few markets together which are always a lot of fun ! I really hope you have enjoyed looking at some of Del's gorgeous creations x o x
