Owls, people, talking about owls. I entered a cool design challenge on the new Artisan Whimsy site. We were challenged to either create a component or piece of jewelry- that included an owl. I chose to use a Lisa Peters Art focal for mine.
The focal just spoke to me. I think, he kinda reminded me of Bubo- the Mechanical Owl from Clash of the Titans.
Bubo in Clash of the Titans (1981 film)
Lisa Peters Cab that I used
Bubo, in Greek Mythology, was a mechanical owl created to replicated Athena's magical owl- also named Bubo.
So, if Bubo was a good enough name for Athena's Magical Owl, then it's good enough for the name of my piece. I tried to capture the metal and magic in this piece, using nickle silver, chain, pearls, gemstones, and a textured disc bead by Marsha Neal Studio, and a glass headpin drop by Genea Beads.
Here is Bubo! My Magical Owl Necklace.
