What a colorful batch of Serendipity parrots I have for you this month! I ended up with a lot of scrap clay recently, and while I had absolutely NO intention of making so many "scrap clay pendants", they simply decided they had to be made I guess! So here are 13 incredibly unique parrot pendants, in beautiful spring colors, with bits of silver leafing adding some sparkle!

The Serendipity pendants for sale this month could represent a wide variety of species, it is really up to your imagination - however I did base some of the shapes on: African Greys, Macaw, Cockatoos, Conure, Budgie, Parrotlet, Eclectus, Quaker, Amazon, Cockatiel, and more. See if you can pick your favorite species out!

The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 1st. However, I have offered a Buy It Now option on each of these pieces, so if you can't wait for the auctions to end, you are welcome to go snap one up before the bids start!

I've come up with a new name for my "scrap clay birds" - Serendipity Parrots! The whole thing began as a "happy accident" a few years ago when I smooshed up a blob of many tiny bits of scrap clay, and realized that the outcome was so striking, and I've been enjoying making them ever since. I never know how they will turn out, and the result is always unique! I usually get enough "junk clay" at the end of the month to make a few birds, but I've been extra busy the past month, so there were a lot more clay bits to play with!

This time however, I had a little trouble with the gloss finish on a few pieces, and had some tiny air bubbles. They are not very noticeable, and they do not affect the durability or wear of the pieces. However, being a bit of a perfectionist, I'm not completely happy with them, so I'm starting the bids lower than normal on these three pieces, which resemble a Conure, Ringneck, and Cockatoo


There are also two cockatiel pieces on eBay this week, a normal face choker, and a Flights of Fancy necklace in lime green/grey/black, below. All pieces are are on auction for the next 7 days on eBay, ending on Friday the 17th!

These striking Serendipity parrots were created from scrap clay layers of black, wasabi green, and yellow stripes, with a fantastic graphic look!

There is a larger macaw type of parrot, and then a smaller parrot that could be an Eclectus, Pionus, or whatever your imagination can see! I beaded both pendants onto necklaces with a few simple black glass beads, and matching dangle earrings.

The necklace/earring sets are on auction for the next 7 days on eBay, ending on Friday the 17th!

I was speculating about this month's Bird of the Month, and decided that the Mynah Bird would be perfect! With their black plumage, and orange and yellow beaks, they are ideal for the colors of October!

This striking glass beaded necklace and earring set is currently on auction until October 10th. Please note that ALL of this month's auctions are only going for FIVE DAYS, instead of the typical week.

There are also two Sun Conure faces including a bracelet charm and a charm necklace on auction for the next five days.


In addition there is a beautiful new "scrap clay" bird pendant up for auction! This one has a lovely blue cord & ribbon necklace, and holds a charm that says "Follow Your Dreams". It is on auction for the next five days.
