Hello everyone!  Today, I have a couple of fun jewelry pieces to share with you.  I know so many people love owls and as soon as I saw the new Owl Filigree Embellishment 644-B from ButterBeeScraps I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them–create some jewelry!  I designed two necklaces using some of the new items in the store.

White Athena Filigree Owl Necklace

Here is the first necklace I designed.  I just love these pretty filigree owls!  There is so much detail to them.  I added SS16 Clear Pointy Back Rhinestones for the eyes and then I added three of the White Resin Flowers RES003-WH down the center of the owl.

Next I created three beaded and wire wrapped dangles for the bottom of the owl.  I used Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze Bead Cap CAP052-B, and Bronze 6mm Rondelle BD006-B/CL from ButterBeeScraps I also used  Clear 4mm Bicone Crystals,  Clear 6mm Bicone Crystals, and Bronze 4mm Glass Pearls from my own stash.

I also made a small bead dangle to hang up at the top of the owl’s head.

On one side of the chain I created three wire wrapped bead links and alternated with with the chain.  I used the same beads, rondelles, and bead caps as I did for the beaded dangles.

I love how the beaded dangles give some movement to the necklace.

Blue Patina Athena Filigree Owl Necklace

For the second owl necklace I added a little bit of color with the beads and a Patina finish on the filigree.

I think the Patina finish is so pretty on the bronze metal.  On this necklace I added SS20 Aquamarine Flat Back Crystals for the eyes.  Then I added small bits of chain across the center and a Rhinestone Charms to the center of each chain.  At the bottom of the owl I added a few more Rhinestone Charms and then a larger wire wrapped and beaded dangle.  To create the dangle I used a Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze 6mm Rondelle BD006-B/CL, and a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap CAP114-B all from ButterBeeScraps.  The Aqua Jesse James Glass Teardrop Bead and Two-Tone Aqua Blue Round Glass Beads are both from my stash.
