Featuring WhiteOwlDesigns

As a member of the Its Better Handmade Guild I will be featuring different artisan's and how they inspire us all in our creativity. This week I'll be talking about WhiteOwlDesigns and her dedication in painting and designing beads using recycled materials. WhiteOwlDesigns has a way of nature calling out to all of us and respecting what our world has given to each and everyone of us! If you would like to follow WhiteOwlDesigns, here a couple links:

WhiteOwlDesigns started painting at 14 years old and from than on she became hooked on creating different style paintings; whether they be done by water color to canvas. Each of her paintings have a story to tell, you just have to look inside. Her originality in creating a one-a-kind style porcupine quill that she uses to paint each and every bead individually, using numerous color's brings them alive. She give's all of us who create and design inspiration to have fun, creative and original in whatever endeavor's come our way!

Here are some of my favorite beads that she creates:

SILVER and VINE Florals Unique Handmade, Hand Painted, Beads
EARTH SWIRL Barrel Beads Unique Handmade, Hand Painted, Beads

This painting is "Life" inspiring!! Look deeply and you have a tree full of life and oxygen, a sun to brighten our days, plants bursting with buds and flowers; but yet again you have holiday fireworks, a spin wheel full of color and ending our day with a sky full of stars and the moon shining upon us. Its nature calling out to all of us.
