Metal Work Monday: maybe I am trendy...

You can probably tell that I am not super trendy. Well, I didn't think that I was until the owl craze starting sweeping the nation. Freakin' hipsters.

I made this super cute owl bracelet, perfect for the fall. 

I ran a bronze ID tag and a silver disc through the Sizzix 
Big Kick to emboss the tree and owl.

I used my jeweler's saw to cut out the owl.
I used my Dremel and several files to smooth the edges.

I used some purple nail polish to give him some zest.
I sanded a bit off to really accentuate the details.

I used two brass eyelets to cold connect the two pieces.
It seemed perfect to make them his eyes.

I combined gunmetal and bronze chain for further interest.

Love at first sight!
