Theres been so much to do about barn owls lately! I was watching the live Owl cam Molly and McGee a pair of barn owls for months. A live cam in San Marcos California of Molly and her mate McGee. It was just Wonderful! Many friends were made in the process of watching this pair sit on a clutch of 4 eggs to their growing up and departing! The 4 owlettes were named Maxx the 1st born then Pattison, Austin and the little Wesley. At night you would see the parents bring in mice, rabbits and other rodents..two times live. That I never got to see! Then there was the mouse that escaped. All in the day of the life of owls! It was wonderful for 4 months and now the owletts are departed and many a sad person still going onto the chat.
So this is where many people were introduced to Stacey O'Brien who would pop into the chat room of the live Owl box. Everyone was always so excited. Here is the captivating book Stacey wrote. A book you couldn't put down. Hey Lori Anderson a good book here! A fellow bead maker who started the Bead Party btw in the last Blog entry!
Here is the necklace I created and designed for Stacey..I call For the Love of Wesley!
The owl and squirrel are sitting on Mary Ann Carrols ceramic beads,
necklace is wire wrapped in sterling..and Green Girl Studio charms..
Stacey's favourite colours are saturated teals and said she loves
long necklaces..so this can be adjusted..
Here is Wes when he was little what a little joy he was to her..
I don't want to tell her story but what a heartwarming book this was! A story about a little owl who could not be released into the wild..
It was such a pleasure to make this necklace for her..what a sweet woman..
