Grin Hello everyone, I'm super excited because this is my first ever craftster topic! Grin

My mother has loved owls my entire life and they are everywhere right now, so it's really easy to pick presents for her.  I found this owl pendant at Michael's and decided to make her a necklace for Mother's Day last year.  I gave it three strands of variegated seed and slightly larger beads in a golden/brown palette and interspaced them with awesome glass beads that reminded me of feathers.  I also made a simple pair of earrings to go with the necklace using a silver base and the same beads.  This was only my second attempt at creating any kind of beaded jewelry and even though it is not perfect I was pretty pleased with how it turned out!

This is my "artsy" shot.  The flash washed out the owl image a bit.

 
 

Thanks for looking!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
