Hearts and Owls

I'm still working on inventory for the bead show next week ( Bead Expo Fri 11th-13th nov. Kingston Town Hall Moorrabbin).
I spent a lot of time on a heart design. It features a flower blossoming from a heart, like how love sometimes returns when you may not have thought it possible. There are 'flames' around the edges, symbolizing the challenges/trials that impact on our hearts. OK enough blithering and philosophizing! Here are pics of 4. I have only made about 9.





Now for some owls... I have been in a feverish frenzy making these. Some are in that category where I don't know whether I will actually part with them.
He reminds me of the universe, funnily enough his body was made from a glass called Black Nebula

Had to try out Clio glass, was a challenge alright!
Look! Legs! they make me laugh, like little owl pantaloons.

A tail! He also has legs (shock horror)

Adorable plump baby owls! see the little gap for dangling charms?

The Usual Suspects!
