September Art Jewelry Elements Challenge-Trees

The Challenge this month was issued by AJE team member Caroline of  BlueberriBeads.  She chose Trees as the Theme. So many thought it would be a fun challenge and joined in. I was interested with a couple of animals associated with trees.  Like owls, there so cute.
This is a Beech tree cavity with an Owl.


This huge tree is a Burserra simaruba tree, gumbo-limbo, copperwood or turpentine tree.  It is native to tropical regions southeastern United states, Mexico, Carribean , brazil and Venezuela. I just find them so lush and gorgeous.



Then I thought about one of the little creatures we try to protect the trees from. Rabbits like to chew the bark around the base of the trees. I of course want them both to be harmonious together and so I have created this Necklace, where they always will be. I chose this Ceramic Rabbit connecter created by Jenny Davies-Reazor  that I purchased at Beadfest. I added Czech glass leaves and flowers, glass pearls and some crystal dangles.


My chain for the Necklace likewise consisted of the same elements but also with the addition of an Owl.   

Thank you for stopping by and please hop around to all the participants in the challenge to see what has been created.

  2. Squee! It was great to see you at Beadfest. And I adore what you have done with the "hare portrait" pendant as I like to call it. The addition of the quiet owl looking on is great. Thanks for joining us!
