I've made another "scrap clay" pendant, this time in red, white, and blue! This bird resembles a macaw, and has a glossy finish.

I gave myself a little challenge to come up with a new way to use some broken and scratched beads, and the bird on the right is the result!. I turned each bead around so the "good side" was facing up, and then surrounded each glass bead with clay, with a silver metallic finish. I was going for a Congo African Grey, can you tell?

I also have an assortment of about a dozen new magnets from my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art line, and while I don't normally auction these on eBay, I decided to give it a try this month! I am starting bids off lower than what they will be listed for in my Etsy shop, so if you want to snag a great deal, be sure to take a look!

All pieces shown here (PLUS more that I just didn't have space to show) are running for 5 days, and end on June 27th - unless they end early with Buy It Now!

The Bird of the Month this month is the majestic Hyacinth Macaw! There is a beautiful glass beaded necklace and earring set currently on auction, with a Buy It Now option on eBay.

There are also three African Grey pieces, a bracelet charm, a charm with a "leash", and a magnet, as well as an Umbrella Cockatoo choker. They are all on auction for the next week, with Buy it Now options, take a look!


On August 1st I began accepting VIP (Very Important Parrot) & Rush custom orders through my website. This option was put into place due to the demand that I was receiving from those of you willing to pay more to have a custom order worked in quickly, instead of waiting for a chance in my monthly "lottery drawing".

I've been surprised by the number of VIP orders I am receiving, and as a result, the number of monthly "lottery" requests that I take on the first day of each month is reducing as I give the VIP orders priority.

Because of this, I wanted to give you a bit of a "heads up" notice if you were thinking about placing a VIP order. The closer we get to the holidays, the tighter my schedule becomes with gift requests, and the less likely it will be that I will be able to accommodate all of the VIP Order requests.

If you planned to order a special custom gift in time for the holidays, please place your VIP Order as early as you can. More details about how the VIP/Rush Custom Orders work and the Order Form can be found here: VIP Orders.
