Last night I made a trio of snowy owl brooches:
The story behind these is a pretty typical one for me - I made a snowy owl brooch over a year ago as a thank-you gift, thought about developing the design and maybe doing a range of owls, did some quick drawings ... then put them away and forgot about them.
Then last night I felt in the mood to work on something new, rummaged through my stash of doodles for inspiration and found my owl sketches. I spent a very happy evening sketching and re-sketching lots of different owls, and ended up with a couple of designs that still need some tweaking plus some finished snowy owls which I just adore. They look how I wanted them to look when I first started sketching, and I think that's all I can really ever hope for!
I'll be adding them to the shops tomorrow, and hopefully it'll take me a lot less than a year to get my next owl design finished...
