Imagine strolling through the forest late at night with moon beams lighting the way when suddenly perched up on high is an owl looking down, warning you with its hooting call.
Such a precious moment appears to have inspired Ornella Bijoux to create their owl-motif pendant necklace.
The ancients believed our feathery friend was a symbol of wisdom and femininity. To our knowledge the owl’s status has not changed, and Ornella Bijoux’s charming owl pendant merely narrates a time-defying story.
With its distinctive features – large knowing eyes, and a rotund body splashed with sparkles the Milanese bottega’s whimsical owl is the fruit of knowing hands, wisdom to spare, and an all together feminine way of being.
Handmade in Milan, Italy Ornella Bijoux’s pendant/necklace will add a cheerful touch to any ensemble.
