I remember my mom wearing these owl necklaces when I was a teenager. She had a sort of owl collection. She still has a painting of two owls that her cousin created for her at the time hanging in her dining room. I also had an aunt who had a bit of an owl obsession. I can't believe that they are back in style!!!
Well, needless to say, I came across a couple of vintage owls that I updated and have listed in my shop.
The first one has a rhinestone filled caged belly. I left the actual owl alone and added my own clay filled diamond-shaped bead to keep the focus on him.
The second one is a larger owl that is segmented into three sections--his head, body and tail to give him some motion. His gold rhinestone eyes also dangle from jumprings. Here, I filled his once cut out body and feathery head with metallic gold polymer clay. Of course a bit of coffee was kneaded and pressed into the clay--fair trade coffee that is!!
