Owls are everywhere. Our fascination with them goes back millennia into the roots of cultures all over the world. I will not go into the stories and myths that surround them – they are too numerous to retell here – instead I will share images of actual owls and a small sampling of beads inspired by them.
First the owls… omg I could have posted way more of these, but here’s a few of my favs, starting with Owls-in-trees (I love these!):
And now for the beads, including a few oldies but goodies. It is simply amazing how many different takes there are – each artist with their own unique interpretation – of the same amazing creature.
