"OWL SPIRIT" is a stunning work of art, a collaboration between nature and my addiction to beads.
The owl totem, or spirit guide, is a bringer of wisdom, a sign of intuition and an ability to see and hear through the deepest darkness.
The natural OWL in this crazy lace jasper cabochon is held in continual flight by an 8 inch wing span of seed beads in shades of browns, cream and and midnight navy, attached to a 14 inch necklace of 8 mm round jasper beads in a wonderful variety of colors ending with a toggle clasp.
The cabochon measures 1 1/2 inches in width and 2 inches in length. From the tip of the owl's ears to the tip of the carved leaf dagger fringe measures 4 inches.
This original design backed by the softest suede in a dark navy color, is the very definition the term OOAK statement jewelry. If you see, hear or dream of owls, then this necklace may belong to you.
I have always been attracted to all things natural and earthy. As a bead artist living here in the southwest desert I am surrounded by wonderful lapidary folks giving me access to unusual cuts of jasper and agates that lend themselves to the unique "one of a kind' beaded jewelry I design. Working with natural stones and seed beads which I embroider onto leather or suede using my own original designs with native stitches and techniques I sew or loom each piece individually.Website: www.gaudybyneola.com
