The fabulous owl beads used in the TURQUOISE HOOTS earrings were created with a base glass of turquoise blue and imprinted with a very detailed owl design of eyes, a beak, and individual feathers.  To bring out those details, the owls were then coated with a metallic gold Picasso finish and then polished.  The Picasso finish was left in the recessed areas while the turquoise glass was revealed in the higher areas.  Because the owls are two sided, the one of a kind earrings look great from any angle.
 
To add extreme sparkle to the handmade owl earrings, two types of glittering crystals were used.  Sitting on top of each owl’s head, like a crown, is a silver plated rondelle set with six amethyst purple Czech crystals.  Purple is so rich looking with turquoise. Nestled into the top of rondelle are faceted 4 mm Swarovski crystal bicones in a lovely light turquoise to complement the color of the owls.  Sparkle deluxe!
 
All of the the elements used to create the owl earrings were strung on a sterling silver headpin (made by me) with a hammered loop at the end.  The top of each headpin was carefully wire wrapped into a loop and connected to sterling silver French hook earwires.
 

Owls have been honored through the history of mankind as the keeper of spirits who have passed from one plane to another; they are also associated with wisdom, foresight and sacred knowledge. Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


 

The TURQUOISE HOOTS owl earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
