Yesterday marked the first day of summer here in the USA, with the 4th of July just around the corner, so I've created an assortment of red and blue birds for you in honor of Independence Day! The Bird of the Month is the Red (Moluccan) Lory. There is a full bodied pendant, a lory face choker, and a beautifully beaded necklace and earring set.

Earlier this month I dabbled a bit in creating faux ceramics in polymer clay, which was really fun! I plan to play around more with this technique in the future. There is a faux ceramic Budgie and a Cockatoo (could be a Goffin's or Ducorps, what do you think?), on auction this week. All of the jewelry is being auctioned eBay for five days, ending on Thursday, June 27, unless they are ended early with Buy It Now!

In addition, I am doing another Giveaway! Enter to win the red Faux Ceramic bird necklace shown below, on my website at: www.parrotjewelry.com/giveaway.html The contest runs through July 13th and is open to my newsletter members in the USA & Canada - good luck!

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 plan for March's Bird of the Month was to be the Male Eclectus, in their brilliant green, in honor of St. Patrick's Day! Due to ongoing health issues however, I wasn't able to get the pieces listed for you last month, but here they are now - better late than never, right? :) In addition, to celebrate Spring this month, there is a Congo African Grey with a white and pink flower, strung on a beaded necklace!

The new pieces for sale this month include all of the jewelry shown above: a Congo Grey charm choker, the Spring Flower Congo Grey beaded necklace, a male Eclectus charm choker, and two full bodied male Eclectus pendants (only one shown here). All of this month's pieces have a BUY IT NOW option, so act fast if you see something that you want! The pieces are being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 1st.

The Bird of the Month for February is the Goffin's Cockatoo! This collection was meant for January originally, but due to illness I had to take January off (thus the absence of auctions or blog posts last month) - so I'm happy to be able to offer them this month for you!

There is a bracelet charm, charm choker, pendant, and beaded necklace and earring set. All of this month's pieces are being auctioned on eBay for the next four days, ending on Friday, February 8th. Also, please note that there IS a Buy It Now option on every piece, in case you would like to get something in time for Valentine's Day!

I hope this finds you all well, and to those of you in the hurricane affected areas, please know that you are in my thoughts! My heart goes out to those of you that have had damage and loss. A portion of the proceeds of this month's sales will be donated to the Red Cross to benefit those devastated by Sandy.

The Bird of the Month for November is the African Grey, and I managed to create a rather large assortment for you, including both Timneh and Congo Greys. The pieces include: bracelet charms, chokers, pendants, beaded necklace & earrings, as well as an additional Congo Grey pendant that features a "plucked" birdie (shown in the center above).

 

I've had several requests to make a Kawaii styled African Grey - so here you go! I actually made two Grey pendants, one with a tail, and the other is very small and is more of a front view without tail. I also made a small Kawaii Green Quaker pendant (shown below).
All of this month's pieces are being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Monday, November 19th.
