Do you like animal beads? Do you like to wear animal beads? Obviously, I love animal beads. But I've only just started wearing them. As much as I love making them, I hadn't really considered wearing them as jewelry. I've always preferred to blend in, rather than stand out, and I guess I figured that wearing a brightly colored glass hippo bead with googly eyes would not exactly help with the blending in part. But lately I've realized that by not wearing my own animal beads, I'm not utilizing one of my best marketing tools - me. So a while back I made a tiny owl bead and have been wearing that on a black rubber cord - nice and simple. Yesterday I picked out a slightly larger and brighter owl bead, with a startled expression on his little face (in the bottom picture the one one the right), and I put that on a cord to wear. Who knows? Maybe there's a penguin in a cowboy hat in my future.
But enough about me. I want to hear from you! Do you wear animal beads? Would you if you won one? Say, the bright yellow owl above with the perfect pink flower murrini belly (by lori and kim), turquoise beak and toes? Leave me a comment about what kind of animal beads you would wear and where you would wear them - on a bracelet, a simple chain, earrings, belly button, etc. If you prefer to keep your animal beads on a shelf or under your computer, that's ok - I'd like to know that, too. Also, be sure there's a way for me to contact you if you win. I'll use the random number generator to pick the winner Sunday night (Aug. 15).
