I saw these little ceramic owls in the discard pile at the local bead shoppe (aren’t all bead stores a shoppe?) and knew they deserved better. They were just laying there, asking for some passer-by to please give a hoot about them. That was me. Hoot! Hoot!
They were so full of color and personality they didn’t need much to make them soar.
I pulled the primary colors of the spiral focal from the owls – bright red, mauve and baby blue. The rest of the necklace is a lovely dove grey which compliments the brightness of the owls. I’m not enough of a bird watcher to know if owls and doves coexist in the wild, but in beading they certainly do.
