earth owl and many blessings

My friend Nancy sent me a package in the mail, full of treasures! :D

There were lots of craft supplies, each thing related to a blog post I wrote! I was so moved by the thoughts and kindness behind this gift. It meant so much to me. Opening all the tissue paper-wrapped and ribbon tied parcels felt like Christmas!

Amongst the many things in the package, there were beads! I love beads! I poured them out into a paint palette and marveled at each one. There were a lot of stone chip beads and each is different. It was fascinating. I particularly love stones that are transparent with streaks of colours in them. Reminded me of the tiny bottle of tumbled stone chips I got at the Big Nickel when I was a kid.


It was a such special gift and I wanted to make something really special with them. Something that I can carry around with me.

And so the earth owl came into being! :D


I haven’t done a lot of wire work so this turned out better than I thought. I kind of just bent the wire into an owl shape in a free-formed manner. For the body and the wings I attached/strung the beads on by crocheting with a 2mm hook and thin wire. The eyes are also crocheted.

I found these gorgeous, sparkling glass beads from the package for the eyes. 



And the best thing about the owl is that I had a super fun time making it. The beads inspired many hours of creativity and pure joy.

Feeling so very thankful and blessed.


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
