Mark Roberts are charming, handmade high-design Fairies and Santas that offer countless opportunities to celebrate love, friendship, inspiration and life's memorable moments. As the creator boasts, "Every time I start the design process of my Fairies, I am plagued with the insecurity of "topping" last year's collection, as I usually feel that they just can't get any better. The excitement of the design process seems to enhance the creative process and the end results are on the following pages. As usual, I have to say that THIS years collection is the overall best ever . . . I hope you love them as much as I do!" -Designer Mark Roberts
