Spring Stringing Magazine: Nesting Owl

Exciting News! This week I received the Spring issue of Stringing Magazine!  It's another beautiful issue, full of beautiful design inspiration for spring.  Look for lots of flowers and birds!  I designed a piece for this issue, the one shown above called Nesting Owl.  It has a bunch of Earthenwood goodies in it including an owl, nest, leaves, and a textured hive link and some nest like accents. All of those colorful earthy elements are mixed together with antique brass ovals that remind me of bark, an elegant leafy clasp, and leafy fringe chain.

I have assembled special Nesting Owl bundles with all the handmade ceramic parts at a special price.  You can find them on the Earthenwood Studio website. The brassy links, clasp, and chain all came from ArtBeads.
Make sure you stop by the blog tomorrow for my Bead Soup entry plus a special announcement!  Here is a little sneak preview teaser:
