Steampunk Owl

I've been doing a lot of experimenting recently.  And I'm not sure where I'm going with it yet.  But here is one of my first attempts at making some sort of clockwork gears encased inside of an owl bead.  I used little metal pieces on other parts of him too.  His beak is made from a little screw and he has brass leaf findings on his wings for additional feathers. I used silvered ivory, hoping to tie the look together, but it might be too much.

I like the concept, but I think it doesn't quite have the look that I'm trying for yet.  Not sure where it will evolve.  I'd appreciate your comments- ideas and suggestions.
