After the previous post on my original chainmaille owlet design, I've been asked why that owl looks different than the ones we often see in paintings and movies... Well, I suppose that's because they were inspired by the three baby barn owls on Cornell Lab's bird cams.
Barn owls don't have ear tufts. That's why:-)
Now, what if I add a couple of more rings here and there, to highlight the ear tufts, and add depth to the eyes, wonder how that might change the overall impression?
Better now? :-)
Incidentally, this is also a bigger owl, about 1 1/4" across and 1 1/8" tall. I bumped up the sizes of all rings, and switched all bright aluminum rings to stainless steel for a better weight, which took me much longer than making the whole owl pendant, oy......
Or, should it be "screechhhhh"? LOL!!!
