Owls are great thinkers and hunters. They have a fierce intelligence and represent wisdom, knowledge, change, and intuition. Observant by nature and soundless on the wind, they are considered guardians and messengers.

The magical background of this beautifully intricate design is brown mother of pearl shell. The shell comes from the Philippines which is the only place in the world that mother of pearl is brown. With hues of green, pink and purple iridescence, this watch is a striking conversation starter! Every time you turn your wrist, different colors sparkle. It's exotic and elegant.


Backstory:

Many years ago, I lived on Whidbey Island in Washington State for about a year. I had a little dog that weighed close to 8 lbs. Off the back porch there was approximately 40 feet of grass and then a forest beyond. Every night before bed I let my dog outside. This was our routine until the night I saw that an owl was watching us on the border of the forest. I could hardly believe I was seeing an owl so close up! On the night I saw the owl for the first time, I went out with my little dog and the owl and I made eye contact. The next night, about 5 minutes before my dog normally went outside, I saw the owl land in the same tree. Obviously, this bird was very intelligent and intentional. Again, we made eye contact and it was as if we were both showing our intentions. My intention was to protect my dog and the owl’s intention was see if I would stop being her protector. This went on for weeks and I began to look for the owl and enjoy its company, sort of. And then just like that, the owl didn’t come anymore. I still think about that owl and have great respect for its nature.
