6th Bead Soup Blog Party, 2nd Reveal...

Hello all, glad you stopped by to see the 2nd Reveal of the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party...first a reminder of the yummy soup that the lovely Jo-Ann Woolverton sent me.

Now for the fun I had with the collection I got, did you know Owls have been seen as a good & or a bad omen of a bird through out history in many cultures around the world...??? most however love the wisdom of the owl & their patience & insightful-ness is talked about in many a tales...below is a tale of a few yummy owls that ended up on my work bench...

first up is one of the bigger focal owls cradled in a halo of a vintage (really old necklace I got at a estate sale)   brass medalian...then I added a few beads of my own...plus the yummy owl clasp...

close up of the owls...
here I have a simple stretch but oh so very colorful & fun bracelet, the only findings of mine I used in this one was the sterling head pins & the rings to hold them to the bracelet...yummy

 Magnasite in a yummy shade of turquoise added a pop to this pair of earrings... 

last buy not least my favorite piece that I was wearing yesterday, is this one owl focal with some turquoise color ceramic beads & some metal disks that I put on a easy purple leather necklace...with sterling findings... 

Group Hug....!!!!

I like the idea of placing this owl beads in the center of the bracelet, as well as in the necklace. They say that an owl could give us luck. Congratulations in all of your designs!
