time to show off the owl - without turning red


lately i've added a little loop to some of my wire ornaments since i thought they'd make cute necklace pendants. i made the heart and owl in the photo above for my mom-in-law. when i finished making the owl i liked how it came out, so i made a second one for myself. would you like one too?

you can get your own owl pendant here - for sale -

next time i have my camera out i'll have to take pictures of how the pendants look on a necklace. i've been wearing different ones that i created the last few days, i especially love wearing my little pencil pendants. it's fun wearing my own jewelry, i suppose it's similar to wearing your hand made knit or sewing projects.

it's somehow funny, i wear my pendants because:
    1)  i enjoy them
    2)  i kind of want to show them off
but then if anybody notices and says something and compliments me i get embarrassed. so silly! with other artwork around the house as well. we have a lot of it around our home, so i don't mind people seeing it. but as soon as anybody asks me about it i get uncomfortable. it's much easier showing something off on the blog, at least nobody sees me turning red when i read their nice comments :)

what about you?  do you like showing off your creations and handmade things?

I think they are great and you should show them off! I think you're right about them being like knits and I love seeing what you create.

Those seem like such a great idea! What is the actual material you used for the wire?

@ Rita: I buy the wire at the jewelry department at a crafts store and have several different kids, I would have to check the packaging for more details.

Soooo beautiful!
Never mind turning red: it's a sign of humility and humble people are always greatly appreciated.
