Re Do For Nancy

About this design:

Nancy saw this in my shop and questioned why I used the color beads I used. Well, I didn't have any purple beads at the time So....she sent me Amethyst and more. This is what I came up with...which she likes.


ceramic owl, Amethyst, not sure about the blue beads, ringy copper chain, iridescent spacers and copper hook and eye, Czech glass flowers and waxed linen

    I told Jane I want to wear it for a while — I “LOVE” this necklace as I do owls. Then I will give it to my granddaughter when she graduates college in 2024. She’s going for a Masters in Environmental Engineering. If I don’t last that long, it will be noted in my will.

    This is so pretty! The owl has so much personality. Nancy, I can see why you were particular with it. Great job, Jane!

    Nancy has the best beads and you make awesome use of them. That owl is to die for, he’s so cute. I know it will sell if you put it in your shop.

    Sorry Sweetjane I see that Nancy has dibs on it, LOL. She will enjoy giving it to her granddaughter when she graduates. It already has a legacy attached to it. How cool is that?

    Thanks you all!! I will be glad to send that to Nancy…that and anything else she wants. We have a great system going. Besides, she says she has another purple owl to send me.

    Oh my, this is absolutely beautiful! I love how the purples are pulled out of the focal with the Amethyst beads. It’s great how the owl’s big eyes just speak to you. I’ve been wanting to purchased some of Majoyoal’s creations–I love her work. Does anyone know if there are customs when purchasing from Spain? Nancy, your granddaughter will forever treasure this piece.

    Crystal…I’ve never purchased anything from Spain…but frequently in the U.K. and France..never encountered any customs.

    I love this little owl! I’ve purchased mine from majoyoal in Spain- I’ve not had any problems with custom charges. I also get those little yarn beads from Spain and didn’t have customs. Back to your owl-I love the amethyst with the owl!

    Robin, thank you for your input on the customs charges. :)
