      Thanks Bonnie, I'm so glad you liked my donkey & appreciate the kind compliment

      Judy it's so great to hear you totally loved this, I think it appeals because it is so unusual with the rough gemstones, at least that's what I loved about it

      Eileen thanks so much for enjoying the design, I went back & looked at my orig post which said it was a half inch so you thought super petite, I left off an inch, it's still small but a bit larger (I post really early a.m. so am often half awake, try to be careful but fix things later on lol)

      Aw MrsT thanx for loving his cuteness!

      Lauren what a good eye you have, the crisscross body and chunky stones DO have the look of a pineapple! An I missing Hawaii or what lol! I love to see something from a fresh perspective, thank you

      Mary I am really glad you found him cute also, I really think one cute thing about him is that adorable red eye sort of half lidded, he's probably tired from doing his donkey chores!

      Thanks MyCountry for the nice comment about his cuteness, he has to be blushing by now from the praise

      You're right Anna, I can see his candy like appeal esp with my sweet tooth, wouldn't his image be a cute pinata

      Appreciate the kind luv & comments

      Donkeys are adorable and they have done a beautiful job on this baby Jenni!
      Real stones! Rare.

      Thanks Karen, I do think it's a very rare piece with the rough gemstones on the body, yet it doesn't detract from the cute design. This jeweler Swoboda was known for using these chunky gems in his pieces, and I was glad to see the natural yellowish green peridot gems in this one, today peridot is mostly done as olive green which is not its true color (it was my aunt's birthstone, so she had many real ones). Great compliments my friend, so kind of you

      Very grateful for the love
