As I have posted before, La Bella Joya is working her way through The Beader's Color Palette by Margie Deeb.  This past week the inspiration was this incredible picture of a barn owl.

Just gorgeous, isn't it?  Reminds me that Emma and I want to see "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" despite the poo-pooing from the boys.   Although there are blues and greens in the focal I chose for this necklace, the spotting of the finish was a dead on match.  I paired the focal with cream lucite beads that are soft and touchable, and two sizes of amber colored square beads.  I am a tad obsessed with extenders and adding a cute dangle at the end, so of course I added one to this as well. 


  1. Wooohooo!! I love it! I also loved that you were inspired by the speckled part of the owl. Me too. Thanks so much!

  2. Oh yeah you nailed this! How pretty! I can't wait to play my self!

  3. You picked the perfect beads for the inspiration, Elisabeth! Very pretty indeed.
