Mom's Rainbow

About this design:

Made this piece which reminds me of my Mom. We lost her 2 years ago today. We both love(d) colors, pretty things, flowers and she taught me how to garden.

She would have loved to sit with me for hours and bead and talk and laugh.

She is my inspiration for all I do.
I know she would be so proud of me.

I found the owl connector today. I love it but don't know what the heck I am going to do with it ;)


Flower connector, multi color stones, 20 wire and lobster clasp.

    Its very pretty Peggy and a nice remembrance of your Mom.

    The owl is cute. Maybe some brown beads and leaves? Those little Czech leaves are cute and so many colors.

    Very pretty! The colors of a happy garden. :)

    The owl is cool. I think Deb has a great idea. I’d use some jet black also… to echo his eyes!

    I love your bracelet, your mom are proud of you I belive :) The owl is cute I tought of bronzite and onyx for him as a groundcolor. Then add other material. Debs idea about czech leaves sounds great.
