May's Honey Do List Challenge

I am so glad I ran across this from Sarajo Wentling
Here is the description f the challenge

This year, my husband Eric has decided to issue me a design challenge each month to get me out of my comfort zone and to help clear out my bead stash... we're calling it the Honey Do List.  I know that I'm not the only one who loves a good design challenge, so I'm inviting folks to play along!

Here is this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it:: This month's challenge was going to be some kind of spring flower action, but I was lucky enough to take a class on raptor photography at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum this past weekend and found a new muse!  This is Samantha the white morph great horned owl sitting in a flowering crab apple tree.  Our photogenic raptors were brought out by the Minnesota Raptor Center who rescue injured birds and release those who can survive back into the wilds, while keeping the birds like Sam (who has a broken wing) for demonstrations and education opportunities.  So, this month take inspiration from the bird itself, the colors, whatever strikes your fancy!

Well I am late but I am hoping to add my link any way.
I made a necklace that very much reflects the rustic in me. I started making these owls and I call them Scratchy Owls. I know not all that creative of a title but that's what they are, scratchy.
I used a polymer clay Scratchy Owl, two acrylic leaves, I made a tube bead out of River Birch bark, a silk bead, and then my polymer clay barn. I also made the head pin that you see the very red dot at the bottom of the barn.

There are also vintage beads and Czech rounds.
