I’ve been cleaning out my various bead bowls for a sale and found this guy. He was from a Kim Fields class. When I take a class, I try to adapt what I learn to my beads and not just copy someone else’s work. This owl was one of those beads that I know I will never make again… but this little hooter still still needs a nice home
1 focal 21 mm tall x 22 mm wide. Vertical hole $14.00
I actually made this for me… thinking it would be a nice focal for a kumihimo necklace. After months of looking at it in my bead bowl, it’s time to let it go… 37 mm hole to hole x 40 mm (1.5″) This is a nice LARGE bead. Lots of silver rich glasses, reduced and heavily encased to capture that shine and mother-of-pearl look on both sides. A swath of crinkle dichroic is down the center and a colorful sunflower wrapped around one side, blue aventurine was used for the spiral. Spirals are a symbol of the circle of life or of ‘home” and are often featured in my work. $38.00
This bead was originally to be an entry into the Fire Divas Team “Say it with words” bead challenge. After she came out the kiln, I didn’t like the words, so I slowly heated it up, scraped off / melted in the words, added frit and flowers and Voila! A two day bead is born! This one is in fall colors. Be sure to see the other bead I did this to…
1 3/8″ x 1 1/8″ – $14.00

In one of my favorite color combos. There is one more of these to come… fall colors… same story! 14.00
