Owls always look so cute in jewelry. I gave this fun necklace a tiny owl touch on the pendant. I also love the way the chain complements the flower stamps.

With metal stamping, you can be as precise or imprecise as you like. Cynthia created a random stamped pattern filled with flowers and an owl at the center. Thanks to the fun stamped pattern and the added Bicone dangles, the owl looks like he is surrounded by a beautiful nest. You can see more jewelry made with metal stamping techniques in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
