Pendant of the Day - by Doodlebirdie

Tiny Owl Woodland Terrarium/Diorama Sterling Silver Necklace

Our Pendant of the day comes to us from Doodlebirdie. This minute woodland scene measures less than 1" in it's entirety! At the center is a 1:87 scale replica of an Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus), completely hand-painted with the tiniest of brushes. Faux grass and foliage has been purposefully placed to complete the scene. The tiny house-shaped bottle is made of crystal clear acrylic and measures just .5" x 7/8" x 7/8".

Each enchanting scene is painstakingly created by hand making each pendant unique with slight variations in placement and color.

The great horned owl is the most common owl of the Americas, easily recognizable because of the feather tufts on its head. These "plumicorns" resemble horns or, to some, catlike ears. Great horned owls are adaptable birds and live from the Arctic to South America. They are at home in suburbia as well as in woods and farmlands. Northern populations migrate in winter, but most live permanently in more temperate climes.

The birds nest in tree holes, stumps, caves, or in the abandoned nests of other large birds. Monogamous pairs have one to five eggs (two is typical), both the male and female incubate, and the male also hunts for food. Owls are powerful birds and fiercely protective parents. They have even been known to attack humans who wander too close to their young. ~Thanks National
