    I love this piece, the owl is a fab focal. I like the metal and beads you paired with it. Perfect title for the elements you used.

    The owl is so awesome! Did you add the feathers? Such a novel idea! My granddaughter would just love this design, she’s so into owls right now.

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments. No the feathers were already on him. I have to small owls to match for earrings. But I can not wear earrings.

    Absolutely adorable! There is nothing I would ever touch on this design!! Did you rearrange it at all? Or did it come out of your fingertips as is?? The balance is perfect-weight, focus, texture!! everything!
