Hey.. This is my first time posting an actual project. I got a digital camera for Christmas, and am putting it to use.

This is the best photo I could get.

It's hard to tell exactly ... but it looks like you did an awesome job matching the colored beads to the colors in the owl! Very cute!

That's a great necklace - I love the owl!

(Here's a great tutorial on building a simple lightbox to take good close-ups of jewelry with if you're interested!)

Yeah, the colors are Red, blue and brown for the owl. I used small brown beads (sorted 'ugly' beads), small amethyst separaters, and a brown, red and blue accent gems up the sides that match. Cheesy

Whitestar:

Thanks so much for the tutorial. I want to start selling my stuff on Etsy, but I was thinking I was going to have a difficult time taking photos of my stuff. Cheesy

that's really cute!! I saw an owl almost exactly like that (or it might have been exactly?) at Dollar Tree the other day!  I wanted to buy it and make something with it but I had no idea what I'd do.  Thanks for sharing your idea, love it!
