Lee Koopman of Strega Jewellry started a challenge: “The challenge? Pick a spooky or scary or creepy representation from a Halloween type character as your inspiration. It can be really scary or it can be generic, like “a witch”. It can be cute, like Mavis, Dracula’s daughter from Hotel Transylvania. It can be a zombie or a mummy. It can be Elvira, that Queen of the Night or your favorite vampire. Make something. It does not have to be jewelry. It can be decorations or some other type of craft. It can be a costume. Make it, show it off and tell us about it. How will you celebrate at our dance?”
I chose an owl for my Halloween type character. Old myths claim owls provide transportation for witches if a broom is not available. Myths claim witches can turn into owls and disappear up the chimney. A hooting owl means witches are approaching or a death will occur.
I decided to make a necklace and used a polymer clay cabochon by Sculpted Windows. I beaded around the cabochon with seed beads and made a rope using triple spiral rope stitch.
