I've been so busy lately, but in between custom orders, I created a few "extras" that I didn't really plan to make - it's always fun when pieces just seem to almost make themselves! Shown above is an Umbrella Cockatoo in the Flights of Fancy style, beaded in a striking black and white color scheme, with silver accents! One either side are two "scrap clay" Serendipity birds, in a multitude of colors! All of the pieces shown here are being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Monday.

By popular request, I've also created a new batch of "bird poop" jewelry! Seriously. A lot of people have been asking me to offer more, for Christmas gifts - so here you go! The bird poop listings this week include a small pendant, a medium sized pendant on cord, a magnet, and a bracelet charm, all shown below. Besides the pieces listed on eBay this week, I do have more, and will put them in my Etsy shop next month, or as soon as time allows!

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.

The bright colors of summer always make me think of Sun Conures - one of my favorite vibrant birds to sculpt! This Bird of the Month collection is larger than usual this time, with a magnet and pair of post earrings! I rarely ever offer earrings on eBay, so if you've been waiting for some, don't miss this chance!

On auction are a magnet, bracelet charm, charm choker, post backed earrings, pendant, and beaded necklace/earring set. All of the pieces are on auction for the next 7 days on eBay, ending on Friday the 17th!

 

CUSTOM ORDER NEWS:


From now until January I will be cutting back on the number of custom order requests that I draw in each month's custom order "lottery drawing". Unfortunately I'll only be able to draw one or two a month (from each month's "pool") until after the holidays. Hard to believe, but the custom gift rush has begun, and I have to give priority to the increasing number of VIP/Rush orders.

In addition, I am busy developing a new line of jewelry that I'm really excited about! Hopefully in a month or two I'll be able to give you a sneak peek!

So, while this means your chances of having your custom order request in the monthly lottery will be reduced until the new year, you are always welcome to place a VIP/Rush order if you would like to have a custom order accepted and worked in! VIP orders do cost more than the regular custom orders, but instead of waiting for your chance in the monthly drawing, the VIP orders get worked in ASAP. Please note that I will only be accepting a limited number of VIP/Rush Custom Orders each month, so if you are serious about having a custom piece created in time for Christmas, it is important that you place your order by the end of September.

I really LOVE making jewelry in my Flights of Fancy style! This particular bird could represent a Quaker, Conure, or some other species - what do YOU see? The pendant is so striking in black and shimmering green, with silver and gold highlights that are picked up in the glass beads. The set is really stunning in person!

There are also three other unique creations new on eBay, with a totally different look!


I sculpted a little budgie pendant in a "Kawaii style", what do you think? Also up for auction is a bright yellow Cockatiel face bracelet charm, as well as another one of my "scrap clay birds"! This one has yellow, black, and various other colors striping around. All of the jewelry is being auctioned on eBay for the next 5 days, ending on Monday.
