“Hoo!” says the owl when she sees this bead in your next project! And we can’t blame you….We say this bead and immediately thought of the children’s book, by author Martin Waddell, Owl Babies. It’s a story Janice’s grandson, Eli, loves hearing before bed...and it’s about three baby owls who wait for the Mommy Owl to return. This fun metal bead is made by Tierracast in California of metal that is free of lead and nickel. They are considered hypoallergenic.
