Hootie Passion

About this design:

I made this some time ago using cuprite semi-precious gemstones and picture jastper along with some Czech and antiqued caps. And I used one of the LB Hooties. Its for sale in my shop at but its been for sale for so long I plan to donate it to a silent auction coming up in September.


Check out my shop on Etsy for more details.

    I have a purple hootie as well. Haven’t quite decided what I’ll do with him. But I might make a totally purple necklace. I do have a lot between amethyst, other purple gemstones, and purple Swarovski and Czech.

    Thanks everyone. I like Hootie really well. I was almost going to keep him for myself but decided to let him help raise money for ME/CFS research.
