Owl King by purplerhino Owl King by purplerhino
This is a hand crafted necklace. Aspects of the Goblin King went into the making. Golden labyrinthine spacers, crystal globes and a signet. The owl is polymer clay and sculpted by myself. The Barn Owl has different colored eyes and a hint of glitter. This is an interesting piece whether you're a fan of a certain 80's movie or not.

The owl took me a few hours to sculpt and was my first foray into such detailed work.

Necklace is available at Etsy

OMG! I just tripped over my own jaw. A DD? Thank you so much! :boogie: I'm completely floored. I'm sorry I can't respond to all the comments and notes, but I appreciate each and every one. :blowkiss:

I plan on making one or two more today. :) Unfortunately I only had five of the labyrinth style spacers. I'm using the fifth as a template to make clay beads instead.

I'd be happy to make three of them. However it takes 2 days to sculpt, build, and construct. I'm going to be unavailable from til Feb 24th at the earliest. As I posted to another inquiry, I only had five of the labyrinth beads. The last one I used to make molds for flat clay beads highlighted in gold.

Lastly, please be aware that these go for $35 a piece.

Send me a note at Etsy if you are still interested.

I immediately though of the Labyrinth when I saw this XD Very creative, love the balance of it ;) It would be interesting if it were asymmetrical too, but I really like the spacers you have there! Really cool work!

This is a very nice necklace. The owl is so wonderfully done. I like the embellishments you added. It is also intersting that the eyes are different colors.

As for the movie, are you talking about The Labyrinth?
Reply
:iconpurplerhino:
purplerhino Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, it was inspired by "Labyrinth" and while I know Jareth's eyes were due to Bowie's unique eyes most of fandom seems to think the Goblin King had one blue and one brown eye.

It went for $35 + postage. I was planning on making more variations on the theme. I think I just got encouraged to do just that. :)
