Hermes

Hermes is the great Messenger of the gods in Greek mythology as well as a guide to the underworld.He has also been said to be a bringer of dreams to the mortals.

When this design popped in my head, I couldn't wait to make it. I've always loved owls and wanted to make my own. He is wire wrapped and coiled in copper wire. His big eyes are adorned with tiny chocolate seed beads and centered with a carnelian stone bead. The body is a pretty brass heart shaped charm.
