    These are wonderful! I love things like this. A lot of work there.
    I've done a beaded turtle for my native american regalia so I can imagine the amount of work involved.
    I love the owl too!
    A good way to carry a small knife without it being too obvious.
    You are giving me ideas though anything I make will not be up to this standard!
    I have been working on ideas on how to put together a small survival kit about myself without it being obvious as to what it actually is.
    Brilliant stuff!

    The eagle owl does look fierce enough for the claw. Maybe there should be a pigeon for the compass. :):)

    Wonderful. The turtle is so important in the eastern legendary beliefs of creation.

    I need lessons. Be it your embroidery or my wood carving, I struggle with left/right symmetry.
    You are very good at that.
