Having More Jewelry Fun - Barn Owl Necklace

I'm still not able to torch so I'm still into making some jewelry pieces and just having so much fun doing it again !  I feel very much inspired with all these new beads and some new pendants to "play" with.  :)  This latest piece I ventured back into beaded Kumihimo again and may I say, I LOVE the outcome.  :)  So very pleased with this necklace I don't know if I'll sell it or keep it.  lol !  Still the pendant is the star in this piece.  The Barn Owl porcelain pendant made by artist Laura Mears.  Wow !  Fabulous work.  I want more of her pieces even though I have no idea what I want to do with them.  I still have an otter and a hummingbird I need to work with. 

It finally came to me in one flash of a moment what I needed to do with this owl.  Instead of doing the typical bead embroidery around it, it needed to really shine in whatever I ended up doing.  So the best thing I could decide on was to just leave it as it is.  I needed to add the bails to it to be able to attach it but that was all.  I made the right decision.  :)  

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for coming by.  I hope you come back again soon.  One of these days, I'll be able to torch again !  lol ! 


  1. Beautiful Debbie,
    I agree the owl looks good on it's own.
