I happened upon these sweet charms lately, and simply couldn't resist making them up into some fun jewelry. While there is no sculpting or polymer clay in these pieces, I thought that the owl and bird themed charms might appeal to some of you! There is also a lovely Koi fish necklace & earring set that has semiprecious stones, including mossy agate. All pieces are being auctioned on eBay, ending on Monday.

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

With Halloween almost here, I thought that this was the perfect time to share some of my "Opera Ghost"/Phantom of the Opera themed jewelry! There are several Phantom face necklaces, a pair of spooky skull earrings, and two very special beaded necklace sets that are all on auction until Tuesday.

These two beaded necklaces (at the top of the photo here) feature images of my sculptures under glass, with handsculpted antique-looking clay frames, and individually linked glass beads. These two necklaces will give you a little taste of the style of the new line of jewelry that I've been working on!

I'm incredibly excited about the new upcoming line of jewelry, and am busily working to have it ready to debut by the end of the month! So if all goes well, you can expect a newsletter in the next 3-4 weeks, with all of the details, and about half a dozen special new one-of-a-kind necklace sets!

New on auction are an assortment of jewelry including some gorgeous earrings with feathers donated by my female Eclectus! There is also an African Grey necklace with removable charm, a "bird poop" necklace, and another colorful "scrap clay" bird necklace. ALL of this month's auctions are only going for FIVE DAYS, and end on Thursday.

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.
