Old Blue Eyes

About this design:

I've made several bracelets with this mini owl and they never received much attention. I think people just couldn't see him. So...I made him into a charm front and center.

    I love owls. As always your jewelry is great and this bracelet is no exception I gave a bunch of owls away along with other beads to Good Will the last time I made up a bead package to them before they closed up shop because of covid. Now I’ve got friends I give my beads to. My favorite owls are no longer available so I’m keeping the 2 I have left – a turquoise and a purple – for me to make up once I get everything given away.

    Well – you can sure see him now that you’ve given him a place of prominence. Lovely bracelet. I admire your skill for putting all the different beads together to make such a coherent piece. Very fun too.

    Blue eyes can definitely be seen in this design. I love him as a charm. The green Lucite rings along with the leaves is a fabulous feature in this piece. I really like the open centers of the rings with the leaves moving about them–a perfect place for Mr. Owl to reside.
