Mama, we lub you, XOXO, from Julia and Laura - my Designer Quest entry
The names of the two little owlets, Julia and Laura, came from my best friend’s daughters. A little while ago, I made a necklace using some scrap fabrics I got from my friend’s tailor, and named the piece after her. When her daughters saw the pictures on my blog, Laura sent me this cute email:
“To Auntie Caroline (godmother),
Why does Mommy get to be called a jewellery Celina? Mommy gets to have her name in your website too and for me and Julia get to be DAUGHTERS it is not fair and please pretty please be in your website called Julia and Laura?
P.S see u soon.”
To make it up to them, I promised that I would soon make a necklace in their names. With this in mind, I made the owls with bronze clay, and hand dyed a piece of white lace in matching colours to use as a base. Have used most of the beads in the pack except for some seedies, and didn’t add any extra beads. Am quite happy with how this turns out. Hopefully it will get the seal of approval from the two darling princesses. Thanks for looking, and please click on the photos if you'd like a larger view.
