Peacocks Dream, The Designer

When you see something designed, such as these beautiful, simple and lovely earrings, you see the distinctive mark of the designer. Here, it is the gifted and talented artist Renata Gebauerova

This is her design; it is available on fabric
the “mark” ~ the ” fingerprint”, the design, is unmistakeably hers –

The design on this tee shirt, also her design, which is on fabric as well, is unmistakeably
Rencha …..:) cheerful, joyous, chic and lovely – her designs are one of a kind……

They reflect her –

The peacock’s feathers detailed and intricate more than one can imagine just by looking…….
