Across a multitude of cultures throughout history, owls have been the source of many myths & legends. Not only has the owl long been considered a symbol of wisdom & helpfulness but was also believed to hold the power of prophecy – even the death of Julius Ceasar was believed to be predicted by an owl. The ancient Greeks believed owls came out at night because they were filled with a magical ‘inner light’ so they could see in the dark. An owl always accompanied Greek armies into battle & it was a sure sign of victory if an owl flew over Greek soldiers before battle. Athene, goddess of wisdom declared the owl one of her favorites.

No matter what the legend or myth there is no denying that owls are a growing trend in accessories – & I WANT SOME! So I headed to my usual stops, Etsy & Shopbop. Here is a collection of my favorite new, vintage & handmade pieces. I hope it inspires you to find your own unique owl accessory.

#1 Vintage Modern Owl Pendant – available at Fresh Fig
#2 Vintage Autumn Owl necklace & Brooch – available at Kiamichi7

If you asked me which of these is my favorite I’d say ALL OF THEM (but if forced to choose it would be number 2 – it has such a killer boho chic vibe to it) – these have new obsession written ALL over them :)

  1. Funny, I was just thinking about finding owl accessories today but it was a major failed, I got caught up in the nail polish department.
    I love number 1 and 2, the first one seems like the throw on with anything one just to pull the outfit together. The second one has great contrasting colors, looks fuun!
