HENRY, THE OWL


About this design:

I fell in love with the Earthenwood Owl - so cute. I love animals - owls included. So Henry is all dressed up with a fall background. I think he's happy there finally. I must have changed this about 25 or more times. I was going to remove the carnelian slabs, but decided they looked like a symbol for flight and left them

Components:

LB copper chain, LB Carnelian flat free form and faceted ovals; Earthenwood Studio ceramic owl; Czech glass margarita beads and butterscotch chandelier beads.

    This is a gorgeous array of beads that accent the owl perfectly! Personally, I would go with your instinct to remove the carnelian slabs. They’re pretty and do kind of symbolize flight but I think they distract from the overall effect of the other wonderful elements you’ve put together.

    so very cute!….love the carnelian freeform, like falling autumn leaves; maybe they do compete with little owl….depends how it appears when worn, but the colours are yum!

    What a perfect companion for the Henry, very ” fallish “( is that a word?)

    Love this piece…but, I agree with Gail on the slabs! Maybe if there were closer to Henry to showcase him, but then they might overwhelm the little guy! LOL
