Deli has never been in this for the money, it has all been a labor of love since it's inception and you can see this love and a piece of Deli in every gorgeous piece she creates. Deli has been a fashion Pioneer in SL from Vintage, to futuristic pieces, she has paved the way for other artists to follow in her mentoring, creativity and passion for all she builds. To Deli success means that her followers are satisfied and love every piece that they buy from Gems & Kisses as she has been creating them.
Deli is a very generous person, she has a huge heart and gives so much of herself and her art to anyone who needs it. She has donated a lot of time and energy to a lot of SL charities and causes, the biggest ones being Haiti Relief RFL, Japan Tsunami Relief. She goes out of her way to donate what she can to help out wherever she can. She has also been amazing to new models starting out in the industry, mentoring and providing them with opportunities that they would have not gotten easily.
With this success has come pain for Deli. She has had some major health issues in the last few years that have impaired her temporarily but continue to be a real issue in her real life and second life. Through all this physical and emotional pain she works through doing what she loves, which is her art and creative process that brings all of us a piece of her with every piece of Jewelry we wear from Gems & Kisses. To add to this, unfortunately there are people that don't like to see others succeed and go out of their way to cause pain and doubt about artist when they are insecure in their own abilities and the competition presented by others that are talented. She has been the brunt of some very unfair, unfounded accusations and cruelty that goes beyond complete disrespect for her has an artist and a human being. These things would cause most of us to pack up and leave but Deli holds her head high and continues to create and put all that passion, hurt and anger into building her art and creating pieces that are more spectacular than the ones before them.
Deli is a dear friend to me, she has been the source of so much inspiration, creativity, support and success in the modeling industry in SL. I only want the best for her and her happiness and success. For those of you that don't know this beautiful, talented artist, I can tell you it has been my honor to call her friend. I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for all she does for me and for every project, charity that has been dear to my heart. She is truly one of a kind!
