Description from Julie Shane: Purple-Hoot is now in my bag because of the kind advice of Granny. In her pick "Olive Playing with Beads" she featured this adorable owl. When I lamented his cost, she shared her necklace made with his blue brother. ***You must go look at the pics!*** I fell in love and wanted one of my own! So I went on a search for complementary but varied colors and textures to try to emulate her work. ***Imitation is the best flattery!?!?!*** The Rustic moon is Purple-Hoot's new best friend.

    Great combination of components, Julie! Purple Hoot would look great with any of them.

    I have one of the Hootie’s cream cousins. So cute that I hoard him! Now I am inspired to make something with(and for) him!

    Hi Susie, Did you go back and look at Granny’s necklace? Isn’t it great!?! I love that it’s asymetrical and unmatched yet all comes together so well! Let me know when your piece is finished and we’ll share our results. :)

    Well, aren’t you the sweet one. My yes, I do appreciate you being inspired by my piece. I’m so tempted to get one of the purple owls for myself incase someone should purchase my blue necklace.

    Aren’t we good! :o )

    Asia: Go back and find Granny’s pick called “Olive Playing with Beads.” Then scroll down to the comments and she added 2 pics of her necklace.

    Becky: How funny! I just assumed he was a “he.” Why can’t she be a “she”? Now I’ll have to re-think everything!!! :)
    Yep. My colors are very different from Granny’s since she used the teal Hoot. That’s what’s so fun… There are SO MANY ways to use our favorite pieces.
