DaffyDill One Of A Kind Designs On Art Fire

I recently joined the It's Better Handmade Guild on Art Fire.  I was excited to be accepted as this guild appears to be both dynamic and growing, with members that are active and willing to support and promote other artisans in the guild.  My first task for this guild is to feature one of the artists of the week in a blog ring post. 
DaffyDill, One of a Kind Designs is an admitted craftaholic.  With 40+ years of crafting  experience  under her belt, this British Columbian artist is dedicated to reusing and repurposing materials in new and beautiful ways, as evidenced by the necklace below.

As with many crafters, she has many interests.  Some of this talented artist's other interests include wire wrapping.  This striking  copper wire coil bracelet reminds me of one that my mother wore years ago, but it's timeless style and elegance still holds true today.

Another of this fantastic artist's many talents is beading.  This gorgeous amethyst necklace with beaded accent shows highlights this.  The choice of colors and the dramatic necklace is definitely eye-catching.

Crocheting is another of Daffy Dill's interest.  This vintage looking Newsboy Cap is an example of her talent in this area.  This piece is reminiscent of times past, when young boys stood on street corners, hawking newspapers. 

All in all, this is one talented artist with  myriad interests and talents. And, as she states in her Bio page on her Art Fire studio, while she might not be getting rich, she has much happiness in what she is doing.  And, in the end, isn't that what really matters.
