I absolutely love owl jewelry. A symbol of mystery and wisdom, I’ve been fascinated with owls since childhood. They’re also the mascot for all things super nerdy. And if you’ve been reading this blog you know that things can get quite nerdy! Best of all, this collection is a steal, ranging from only $5-$28 per piece.
I love statement jewelry, and the pendants above make a bold statement. I believe that all but one came from Eastside Antiques in Fort Worth. My aunt gave me the white owl pendant- how cute is he with his wing hiding his face!
Sometimes, you just need some bling in your life. These are medium-sized pendants, rather modest in my opinion. However, what they lack in size they more than make up for with sparkle. These necklaces are perfect for dressing up any casual look.
Like art, jewelry can be a literal representation of a real-world object, or more abstract. I love when jewelry takes a more artistic approach and suggests an idea or object, rather than simply replicating it. These owl pendants and two-finger ring (top right) are fun and visually interesting. I just got the green one from Dolly Python Vintage in Dallas, and it’s my new favorite of the collection.
This is a grouping of my smaller pieces, which includes brooches, a ring and a necklace. I love the little guy with the argyle sweater. I just remembered that I forgot to include another brooch- it’s a gold owl with eyeglasses that actually move up and down! It’s so adorable. I got it at the Montgomery Street Antique Mall in Fort Worth. The “shadow box” necklace came from Charming Charlie in Virginia a couple of months ago.
This group incorporates natural stone into the design that gives each piece a vintage feel. The necklace at the top also came from Dolly Python in Dallas. The bottom brooch has a lovely red stone with silver and gold detail. It reminds of the bird in that really old- I mean really really old- movie “The Clash of the Titans.” It’s an oldie but a goodie.
Speaking of an oldie but goodie, it’s almost time for Thread Conscious’s TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY! My, how time flies when you’re having fun. : )
