Reappearance of Owls

My love of owls has ended up back in my designs lately. I don't know why it resurfaced, or why I am feeling more able to let things go, especially an influx of owl beads and pendants from my stash.  I can also tell you that the necklace I made for my challenge with Nancy from Sunday, also features an owl.  That's all I'll say about that, you'll have to come back by the blog tomorrow to check it out!

Last night I put together some of my favorite ceramic components, creating this "Sittin' Pretty" necklace. It's now listed at Big Cartel.


It features a porcelain owl from Nancy. I struggled with what to add to that bottom hole- and just couldn't come up with anything so I left it alone. I wire wrapped him underneath one of Melanie's Earthenwood focals. It's kind of rustic, with the bolts, almost making it seem like a piece of wood from a treehouse or something.  Up one side, copper chain, with an Earthenwood leaf dangle, and knotted leather up the other, with wood and filigree beads. The clasp is a button from Leann of Summers Studio Etc.   A nice little pop of color at the back of the necklace, is always a good thing.

See you tomorrow for the big reveal. :)
