Last winter one of my lovely customers, Amy Mogish, asked me to make a custom eye glass chain for a project she was working on. Amy had painted a beautiful wooden eyeglass case and she wanted me to make a coordinating chain for her eyeglasses. She sent me the sweetest owl charm that she had painted herself and wanted me to attach to the back. She also sent a couple of pictures of her painted owl for inspiration.
Now her work can be seen in the latest Paint Works Magazine (April 2013). You can even try your hand at making this project with her detailed step by step instructions.
Owl Be Seeing You by Amy J. Mogish.
I made the glass chain with denim blue and brown glass beads along with some copper beads. All handwrapped onto copper wire and attached to antiqued copper cable chain.
So much fun to see this project in print. I'm so happy for Amy and so happy I could be a small part of it. You can find Paint Works Magazine at your local book or magazine shop.
