  55. “A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?” – Edward Hersey Richards
    Charming necklace – it would be a wonderful addition to any jewellery collection.

  56. The owl is a symbol of remembrance for my 3 year old grandson who died of cancer. I would be proud to wear this beautiful piece in his honour
