My mum recently asked my to make eleven owl brooches to hand out to a group she's been doing a course with (the owls symbolise wisdom gained!). I was quite pleased with the end result. For some reason I especially like variations on a theme - things that are the same but different.
I have a few spares to finish off for the Etsy shop, however considering that one of my goals for 2011 is 'taking advantage' of the time I have, I'm going to go slowly with them and think about ways to make the brooches extra special, maybe with some extra embellishment and embroidery. Stay tuned!
