Archie is a short name for Archibeadies 

Archimedes of Syracuse (Greek: Ἀρχιμήδης; c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity. Among his advances in physics are the foundations of hydrostatics, statics  and an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines, including siege engines and the screw pump that bears his name. Modern experiments have tested claims that Archimedes designed machines capable of lifting attacking ships out of the water and setting ships on fire using an array of mirrors.
Funky Archie will hang out with the other owls in my collection. I decided to add wings to this owl. His eyes are wired with red swarovski crystals and black Hematite beads. His body is shaped, hammered and coiled with copper wire. I added yellow/orange dyed Howlite briolettes for his wings. His body has brown seed beads, red and yellow crystals and glass beads.
