This was a fun experiment! I played around with "faux leather" effects last month, and made this unique parrot pendant, which I based on an Eclectus shape.


Here is one of my faux ceramic "test" pieces which I decided to string up on a simple string necklace - starting bid is just $9.00!


This pretty necklace set features a Flights of Fancy parrot in turquoise green (which could be an Amazon, Caique, Pionus, or whatever your imagination can see!) on copper chain with some gorgeous accent beads.


I've also listed more magnets from my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art line on eBay! 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! I only had room to show one here, so be sure to take a look at all of my eBay listings to see everything!

All of the auctions are running for 5 days, and end on Tuesday, July 30th, on eBay.

It's Budgie time! I rarely offer budgies on eBay, since these are one of the most time consuming birds to make, but last month when I was finishing up some custom orders with budgies, I decided to go ahead and create a few for you! There is a full bodied budgie, a budgie face, and a "Kawaii styled" budgie. The budgies are being auctioned eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22.

I recently had fun playing around with an attempt to recreate jade and rose quartz in polymer clay! I've been working with polymer clay for nearly 20 years now, and the versatility this amazing stuff still continues to astound me. There is no end to the different looks that can be achieved with it!

There are four Faux Jade pendants featuring an Amazon, Cockatiel, Macaw and Eclectus. They are strung on chain with an antiqued gold look. There are three Faux Rose Quartz pendants featuring a Lovebird/Parrotlet, a Conure, and an African Grey, on silver chains. All of the pendants have a high gloss finish. (All white splotches on the birds are just light reflections!)

The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22.

The Parrot Toy Angels Spring Auction is up and running - have you taken a look? You can find TONS of great bird toys, people products, gifts, and of course jewelry! I've donated the necklace set above (which features an image of a little girl holding an Amazon). You can make a difference with your bids - 100% of the auction proceeds go directly to help birds in need! The eBay auctions end on Sunday, so don't wait to get your bids in!

I have two new ARTdornments necklaces for you this month! There is a sweet Amazon Parrot pendant on gold chain, and a beautiful beaded necklace and earring set featuring one of pre-raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse's lovely ladies, holding roses. The necklaces both have a Buy It Now option, and are being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on May 1st.

Oh, I've been waiting for this day for ages! I'm incredibly excited to finally unveil the first lot of jewelry in the my new line! It is called "ARTdornments" and features antique art that I have hand sculpted polymer clay frames around, with various aged metallic finishes. Many of the one-of-a-kind pendants are beaded into unique necklaces with semi-precious stones and beautiful glass beads individually wired together. There are also some simpler styles strung on fine chain. Most of the necklaces pictured include matching earrings.

This new line has an old-fashioned feel that invokes the romantic beauty of days gone by. I've always adored past eras, including the styles of Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Nouveau artists, as well as Medieval and Renaissance themes, so a mixture of all of the above is the inspiration for this new line. In the near future I'll be creating pieces featuring some of my favorite Pre-Raphaelite images, as well as many more wonderful avian illustrations and animal themed art. I have to say that I am so in love with this particular style, more than any jewelry I've ever created!

The pieces currently for sale in the new style feature: Major Mitchell's/Leadbeaters Cockatoos, Lady with Barn Owl, Girl with Amazon, Lady with Greenwing Macaw, Lady with Bird (Unknown Species), the Garnier Paris Opera House, and an African Grey in Bronze Setting. (Grey lovers, I want to let you know that I will be listing a different Congo African Grey necklace set in an antique silver setting next month.) I plan to have at least one new ARTdornments piece to auction every month along with all of the "regular" parrot jewelry that I offer in my monthly collections. However, like all of my sculpted work, these pieces are one-of-kind, so if you see one that you really love, be sure to bid!

This is your chance to own one of my very first pieces in the new style; all of the pieces shown above are being auctioned on eBay, ending on Monday, September 29th. If anything is left afterwards, it will be sold through the new ARTdornments Etsy shop (dedicated exclusively to the new work) at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ARTdornments
