Give a Hoot

Standard

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.
