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 gorgeous colors of autumn are surrounding me and providing endless inspiration, so it's no wonder that this Flights of Fancy collection features some birds in fall and earthy colors. Each bird has several tiny sculpted leaves, as well as the word "LOVE". The birds were sculpted from shades of brown clay, with metallic gold, silver and copper highlights. All five pendants are strung on brown ribbon/cord necklaces.

The species represented from left to right are: Macaw, African Grey, Lovebird or Parrotlet, Cockatiel, and the last one could be a Brotogeris or a Lorikeet/Lory - though they are all open to whatever species YOUR imagination can see!

 

There is also another Phantom Face in Faux Ivory necklace on sale this week on eBay. All of the pieces are being auctioned on eBay for the next five days.

 


On a side note, I just received an email from eBay congratulating me on my 10 year Anniversary of being a seller! Time sure flies, it doesn't seem like very long ago that I was just getting started selling my creations online!

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!

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.

This month, instead of just one species, the Bird of the Month is an assortment of birds, in a unique style! I experimented with a polymer clay that has the look of stone, and the pieces have the look of carved granite, in muted colors, with coordinating beads in earthy tones.

There are six "stone bird" necklaces up for auction,, which include four glass beaded necklace/earring sets featuring a Conure, African Grey, Macaw and Cockatiel. There are two necklaces on cord (without beads) featuring a Goffin's Cockatoo and Amazon.

The low starting bids are a whopping 50% off the regular price of beaded necklaces on my website, so here is your chance to snag a GREAT deal!

Please note that ALL of this month's auctions are only going for FIVE DAYS, instead of the typical week. The auctions end on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.


There are two other necklaces on auction, including this Yellow Naped Amazon necklace and a "Flights of Fancy" parrot necklace. The bird could be a lory, lorikeet, quaker parrot, grey cheeked parakeet, or other brotogeris, but the species is really up to your imagination!
