This week artisan ~PRETTY GONZO`

09 August 2011

Here is the story behind the name Pretty Gonzo .


It came from a little orange-and-white stray cat who came crying to her door for food two winters ago and who won her heart with his sweetness, smarts, and social charm. Of course, Gonzo is a stray no longer, and as a far healthier and happier fellow now, he welcomes everyone who stops by "his" shop to nose around.
And also his pretty face is on her avatar on Artfire.


PrettyGonzo began making earrings as a form of physical therapy after she suffered nerve damage to her left hand - a particularly unhappy event because she is left-handed. But determined to turn that setback into something positive, and inspired by a very talented jewellery-making friend of hers, she gave the earrings a try and now you can see her nice work.

PrettyGonzo like painting, drawing and writing – She love them all.

Yay! Am glad to see you highlighted Mary here, Elaine. Such a talented artist. And, of course, I love anyone who takes in a stray and then Gonzo becomes her avatar! :)
