Hoo, hoo are you? An explorer of uncharted territories, always watching, a hoot to be around, a wonder to behold after dark when your curiosity and wisdom sharpens. You’re almost a complete mystery—at times, though, your expressions reveal too much truth.
If that fits you, the Great Horned Owl, “GHO,” or more appropriately Bubo virginianus, is your talisman. Jewelry designer Janet Mavec’s gold owl necklace, Bubo, uniquely captures the curious expression and ferocious beauty of the GHO. Barred plumage like an Elizabethan collar, talons outstretched, wings at the ready. Bubo is a great gift for a night owl, a wise old spirit, or a mom who has eyes on the back of her head. Janet’s late mom collected figurines of owls. “When I got married, my mom came and visited me as an owl.”
Now, the GHO Bubo Owl will serve as symbol for New York City Audubon’s big Four-O: a time when all life’s learnings come to roost, when patience is a virtue that you actually practice. The non-profit protects and conserves wild birds within this urban habitat. 10% of every Bubo the Owl sale goes straight to benefit the New York City Audubon.
