Happy Holidays everyone! I had planned to create another species for December's Bird of the Month, but Rush orders took my time! So instead I am offering you a Male and a Female Eclectus, since I had these on hand, and they are such perfect Christmas birds with their gorgeous red and green! In addition, I created a special pair of earrings made with feathers from my own Eclectus parrots! All of the pieces are on auction, ending on Wednesday, December 11th.


In addition, I HAD to make a few more "bird poop" pieces since you keep asking for more, to my great amusement! There is a magnet, necklace and a pair of earrings, all on auction on eBay. To see all of the pieces on sale, visit my eBay auction listings here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

 


There is also a Faux Ivory Goffin's Cockatoo necklace, as well a variety of "Infinite Love" themed jewelry including a pair of earrings, bracelet, and necklace.


All of the pieces are on auction on eBay and end on Wednesday, December 11: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

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.

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

This month I have a necklace, earring and bracelet set that is very different than any others I've made before! I sculpted a bird (the species is up to your imagination!) with matching oval beads, from black clay and coated with antique copper and silver metallic pigments. The disc beads were then linked together with copper toned wires. The bird is adorned with some glass beads and a small clay charm that says LOVE. Matching earrings and a bracelet are included.

This set is so striking in person, and while the beads might look like metal, the clay is very lightweight, so it is easy to wear. If someone doesn't snap this set up, I'm thinking of keeping it for myself! :)

There are also two "Flights of Fancy" pendants on eBay this week, which resemble Blue and Green Quakers, but they could be other birds, it's up to your imagination! All of this month's creations are on auction for the next 5 days on eBay, ending on Thursday the 13th!

The plan for December was to have both male and female Eclectus for the Bird of the Month, but the rush of Christmas orders cut me short on time, so it's just the males! Watch for females in February!

In this collection, there is a male Eclectus bracelet charm, necklace charm, charm on a cord necklace, beaded bracelet, and a beaded necklace and earring set. The auctions are up until Thursday night on ebay.
