Glass Owl Bead Giveaway!! HOOT HOOOOOOT!!!

Who would like a no strings attached, handmade, very cute, jawjee original, OOAK glass owl?

I have been on holidays and have made a surfeit of owls, they're staring at me from all directions and want some 'one on one' attention from a loving owner. Will you adopt one? Here's how....

I will be holding a weekly draw, on Saturdays starting next week 14th Nov 2009, for four weeks. That's four separate free owl giveaways. I will post like this with images showing the front, back, and hand size reference so you can see which owl is up for giving away. All you need to do is comment! it is that easy. I will then draw out a user's name on Saturday, post up the winner and we'll communicate so that you can receive your new little friend.

These little fellows have been selling like hotcakes on ebay for the past two years, here's your chance to nab a freebie! You probably know someone who collects owls (check with your librarian friends). Imagine how this would make a delightful christmas present! Because it is a bead you can turn him into a pendant or part of a necklace or bracelet or a dangle for your car rear vision mirror.

Moving on to the owl of the moment, here is Hobo. He's got itchy feet and wants to get out there! He was made from Super DaVinci with dots of Terranova glass on his front and back (wings). Ears, Beak and toes are raku and his eyes are a combination of glasses which mixed to form blue-green auroras. Measurements: 16mm x 17mm x 11mm. Get commenting!

It'd be hard to choose - all of your owls are sooooo cute. BTW one of my best friend's name is Petra - only she's from Germany. Awesome generosity. Congrats to whomever wins this cutie

That owl is just lovely! :) While I would love to keep him for myself (if I were lucky enough to win him in the first place that is), I think I would give it to my mom because she really loves owls. :)

Greetings from Munich,

I've recently found your owls. I'm a new fan and would honor this hooter to live with me. Your choice in colors is oustanding.

KLH Designs said...

He is just the cutest little owl! Please enter me for the draw. Thank you!

Okay everyone, Hobo sent a personal letter out to his cousins Bogart, Betty Blue, Starflower, Charity, and of course his favorite distant uncle, Henry the Ape. Since his cousins have difficulty writing, they have asked me to send a return letter to Hobo letting him know "THEY MISS HIM TOO AND, OF COURSE, HE IS WELCOME TO COME LIVE WITH THEM". Hope Hobo gets the message :)) Blessings, Donna

Celia said...

Do you have any owls named Odus? At the bird center that I worked at, we had a Screech Owl named Odus! And a Great Horned owl named Boobo! Both are real characters, Odus attacks bugs and Boobo steals the laundry while you're trying to fold it :)
