In my defense, I had the pieces done, all of the pictures taken and edited--I just couldn't focus enough to write the entry. My apologies... Although, I figure that I've been on top of posting everything else up until this point--missing a day or two isn't the end of the world. (And I technically need to write today's Pretty Palettes reveal, too... Heh.)
This month's Honey Do List challenge over at SJ Designs Jewelry was all using this picture as inspiration:
|Not my photo!|

...and I really, really like that picture.
I am quite fond of owls in general--and I love the colors and composition of this photo. That's why I decided to draw inspiration from the photo as a whole... the yellow-eyed owl amongst green and burgundy-purple and brown.
And so, this is what I made:
Yep. I gave in and made a tassel necklace. It was the first idea that I had upon seeing the owl picture. While making the necklace, everything just came together, and I figured, why fight it?
The materials range from wood to shell, ceramic to glass... I went with goldtone findings to match the yellow of the owl's eyes. (I was so happy to find a ceramic yellow-eyed owl to use as a focal!)
Now try as I may, I couldn't find quite the right color to match the purple-red flowers, but I think the shell and carved magenta wood I used still manage to capture the feeling of the picture.
Oh, and I made matching earrings, too. :)
So, there you go! Thank you so much, Sarajo and Eric over at SJ Designs Jewelry, for letting us play along with your monthly challenge! I know that I was late in posting this, but I really had a wonderful time creating something based on your lovely photo.
...And now I need to go get coffee, if I'm going to get anything else done today. Heh.
Have a wonderful day, everyone! I'm off to be productive!
