Wooden jewellry kits

I brought the sweet wooden owl cross stitch kit on sale from Spotlight at Christmas.  It's been on my (ever-growing) to do list since.  A few months ago I got motivated to make it - it was very quick and easy (I think it took me longer to decide on a design than it did to complete the cross stitch LOL).  Then I got distracted by my ripple blanket and didn't end up doing anything with the owl.  

I loved how the owl turned out, so when the kits were on special again recently I decided to buy a smaller one to make into a brooch. 

On the weekend I brought some jewellery making pieces and decided to make the owl into a necklace (I had originally considered making a brooch, but it was a bit too big) and the fox into a brooch..
