Featured Artist April 4-11: DreamRiver Designs

Wow a crazy week has delayed me getting this feature done, my apologies first to Debbie for not being more timely and also to my dedicated readers for the delay. Enough about me...

I'd like to introduce to you Debbie of DreamRiver Designs. Aptly named in conjunction with her long awaited farm in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. Debbie is a master chainmailler, an active member of Handmade Artist's Forum, Mailler's Worldwide and American Craft Guide Community. You can find many of her wares for sale at the Handmade Artists Shop and a few in her etsy shop. She also keeps up on Facebook with her fan page and maintains two great blogs, one highlighting her business, DreamRiver Designs and the other her farm, DreamRiver Farm (be sure to read about her crazy geese!). Her business blog features a wonderful picasso widget that displays a shifting gallery of her works, I spent a very long time sifting through the 400+ photos to bring you a few that I felt were a strong representation of her various talents. I'm also super pleased to find another "bug beader" how fun!!! Please visit her and enjoy all her works.

I really like the different pieces that you found. I never saw the beaded bugs. Guess you have a little competition!
