My entry is for an owl necklace or choker - however one wishes to wear it. I did the pieces in macrame using 3 different colored cotton threads and embellished both the necklace/choker and earrings with wooden beads and some small green quartz, plus a few metal feathers. The necklace/choker "chain" is made from braiding the three colored cotton threads tightly.  The earrings are dreamcatcher's of sorts and are totally my own pattern. The earring hooks and thread-covered hoops are silver. Smiley













 I got the idea for the owl here: http://www.free-macrame-patterns.com/owl-pendant.html though I changed it around some and added embellishments.

Thanks for looking!!!  (I hope this is the only place I'm supposed to post this!)

My mom taught me how to macrame years ago, this reminds me of her. I like this a whole lot.
