Owl Totem Seed Bead Embroidered Necklace With Micro Macrame Cords

Owl Seed bead Necklace Strings by The Beading Yogini

My second attempt at seed bead embroidery. I intended this piece to be a cuff bracelet, but the laws of physics did not allow that to happen. The cabs on it were too large to bend at the proper angles. So, as most designers know, flexibility is the key to creativity. Hence, with a few micro macrame cords, a necklace came into being. What I like about bead embroidery is that there is creative space to meander and allow the piece to take on it’s own life. This one gradually worked it’s way into being an owl design. Again, not intentional, but it happened that way. Owls are one of my spirit totem animals. In native American tradition, Animal spirits usually appear to people during dreams or meditations and the qualities of each particular animal have a lesson to teach. About owls: they can see well in the dark, hence the relation to help us develop and get in touch with our own psychic abilities, honor your intuition and inner knowledge, seek the truth beyond appearances. Stay tuned for several more pieces that I’ll be working into my spirit animal totem series.

  1. This necklace is totally beautiful. I’m drawn to owls too, they are such beautiful, interesting animals, and the historic symbolism into them is so interesting. Owls pop up in my dreams a lot, perhaps there is a meaning there that i should look into.
    Can’t wait to see more of your work

    One of my most recent pieces was designed as a bracelet but was just to large to work- it too became a necklace.

    I absolutely love those colors.
