About this design:

The cool autumn weather and an owl hooting late at night when I can’t sleep inspired this set. Actually, a certain owl ( named hootie) asked me if his cousin , Zeke, could come out of the drawer and join the others. I said, “sure, just keep the shenanigans to a minimum.” We all had a laugh and another cold brew! That’s coffee guys, not beer hahaha! Ok this bird has flown around the room several times- I think he’s upright now!


I used: Australian green opals(LB), wooden golden jasper(LB), Czech glass ovals and leaves from my stash, matte ocean jasper, and copper findings . Zeke is a polymer clay pendant.

    Zeke is so adorable! I like the woodsy feel of the piece and all the little additions of leaves & pinecones. Your choice of beads enhances his rustic look. I have an owl project I’ve been working on for the last several days, but he’s in time out. Maybe a cup of strong brew might give my brain the impetus to settle on the final touches–great idea Robin.

    Wow – another wonderful woodland necklace. So glad Hootie asked about Zeke. Love all of your little touches with leaves, pinecones, bead caps. Just fun, fun, fun. Any shenanigans?

    Does Zeke know you are telling stories about him? He should be thrilled. You have given him a wonderful wood land setting with all of the things he needs to be a happy owl. He can fly right into autumn and be a most Fashionable Fowl.
