Anytime I find an owl bead, I have to buy it! I don’t know where the obsession came from, but I just love owls! They remind me of the 1970’s and my grandparents basement, that is, well, stuck in the 1970’s! They just have a very retro quality, especially when you find owl beads with big exaggerated eyes. I have made several pairs of owl earrings in my days, people either love them or hate them. Here is a pair I did with they lovely colorful enameled┬ábeads.

Enamel beads paired with swarovski briolettes and gold findings

And here is another page I did with brown czech glass owl beads that have a gold finish on them to emphasize the details of the beads.

You never know where you will find your next owls beads. I have found them at pawn shops, thrift stores and antique stores. (And well of course in the funky bead stores) Well, I hope you enjoy owls as much as I do!
