Whimsy Wednesday! An Owl of a Good Time!

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to Whimsy Wednesday!
I hope your week so far has been grand!
I've new earring creations to show you, so let's get started!
These first two pair of earrings contain owls that are dyed Howlite (often used as an inexpensive substitute for Turquoise, and often referred to as "Chalk Turquoise").
Legend has it that Howlite helps with redirecting anger (both internal and external) to more productive avenues, aids in memory retention and desire for knowlege, soothing and articulation of emotion, aids in meditation and etc.
Owls are found in many cultures to symbolized wisdom and knowledge, particularly of the inner landscape of the heart and soul. Hmmm...I sense a theme here!
Title: Party Owl
Ingredients: Howlite owl(dyed), cut crystals, metal, surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic).
Incidently, Bright Pink is thought to encourage playful conversation and a lively atmosphere!  Perfect for a Party Owl!

Title: Night Owl
Ingredients: Howlite owl(dyed), cut crystals, metal, lead-free pewter (USA), surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic).
Purple has long been a colour of royalty.  It is thought to encourage intuition and spirituality, set people at ease, increase self-esteem, and balance and relax the body.  Nifty!
I love the flash of iridescence from the cut crystals as the light plays with them!

And our final pair of earring creations....
Title: Splish-Splash!
Ingredients: Lampwork glass beads, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, lead-free pewter(USA), metal, surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic).
I love these rubber duckies, the deep and bright colours of the beads and the sheer whimsy of it all! That's it for this Whimsy Wednesday! 
Have an excellent few days and I'll see you on Friday! Ciao!
