I am revisiting a design that I created back in 2008- Similar idea, different color palette.
I created this piece for an Art Bead Scene challenge. A glass owl, beads and a brass locket, dangle from a Vintaj Brass Toggle. The ceramic connector from Earthenwood Studio is one that I got from my local bead shop. I love the rich color of the glaze Melanie used.  I paired it with a deep green silk cording and brass findings.
The new pieces is quite similar, but with a more royal feel. Purple and red tones always give a rich feeling. The ceramic heart and connector bead are both from Earthenwood Studio. I also dangled a brass charm and faceted labradorite from the toggle. The silk cording is a deep purple.


  1. The red heart really it!

  2. Both are lovely. I really like the filigree bead that cinches the silk cord.
    Bead Happy!

  3. Did you just see the cover of Country Living magazine - purple walls and red toile - you've totally got the look here! I love it!

  4. Both necklaces are wonderful! You make very beautiful jewelries Lorelei!! :) Your beads are so nice here! I looove Earthenwood Studio's bead work it's amazing! I loove the glass owl necklace and the red heart is veeery beautiful! Well, both are very very nice!
    Kisses :)

  5. OOOh, I love this necklace! Very pretty! I'm glad you had a good time in Spain, your pictures are super!

    P.S. Love the new "Be Nice or Leave" sign! Perfect!

  6. Are those Marsha Neal Studio silk cords? I love both of these necklaces. You just keep on winning with a winning design like that. :) of course I love the owl, but the new one is lovely, too. I love the clunky eclectic look; it's just so Bohemian! Saw your Sunflower in Stringing's spring issue. It, too, is a beautiful piece. <3
