I love the sound of the Owl hooting in my backyard here in Florida. I know he watches over my yard and as he feasts on little critters, he keeps them away from my house. This necklace was inspired by the owl in my backyard. I stared with a Pewter Owl bead, beautifully hand made in great detail by Green Girl Studios of Asheville, NC USA. The owl sits on a gnarly red coral branch as it surveys the yard. The asymmetrical necklace is made from large smooth nuggets of yellow Turquoise, and smooth round beads of natural Smoky Lemon Quartz. The beads are all spaced by tiny yellow turquoise beads and the necklace comes to a close with a pair of brass bead cones and large round toggle. A pair of matching earrings completes the set. I will gladly add some red Coral beads to the earrings, if you wish.
Lime Green Turquoise occurs naturally, but is stabilized for durability and color enhanced to be used as beads for jewelry.
Smoky Quartz is the clear grey or brown variety of natural Quartz. Natural healers have long used it as a mood enhancer, it is recommended to dispel ones negative energy and depression. It is considered the gemstone for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn.
