Thanks to Harry Potter, the owl has had a resurgence in popularity. Throughout history, the owl has received mixed reviews. The Greeks believed an owl flying over a battlefield meant victory, while in other cultures, owls were considered omens of death, prophets of doom. In modern times among Western cultures the owl is associated with wisdom. I tend to think of the owl as a symbol of wisdom and that is why I am drawn to it.

I won the cute ceramic owl made by Blueberribeads. I have taken my time using the bead because I wanted to do justice to it. Also, I find purple very challenging to work with because there are so many different shades to this color. It took me time to find beads, crystals, and silks just the right shades.
