This Bird of the Month is a bird that I've never sculpted before, and have been wanting to tackle for some time. After continuing to receive requests, I decided to go ahead and pick this bird for November, and it is the Green Aracari! They are Toucanets (like "mini toucans"), and I found that the males in this species have a black head and the females have a brown head. I created a male Green Aracari beaded necklace set, and a female Green Aracari on a cord necklace, and both are on auction now, ending on Friday, November 22nd. Be sure to take a look at my ARTdornments jewelry too as there is a piece featuring a pair of Green Aracaris as well.

I have an assortment of various new pieces of jewelry on sale this week! There are two "Infinite Love" necklaces, featuring a hand in the American Sign Language pose for "Love". I was commissioned to create a bunch of these for an event earlier in the year, and made a few extra that I thought I would offer to you too!

There are two parrot necklaces, one that was an experiment with a new clay, and looks a bit like an African Grey, with a golden/brown wash. It could be any species that your imagination can see! Then there is a Red Bellied Parrot necklace in my "regular" style.

While I normally do not use molds with the majority of my work, I recently found a fantastic mold that makes lovely realistic leaves, so I had to give it a try! I was so thrilled with the results. I created a pair of earrings with the beautiful lightweight leaves, which are in translucent earth tones with bits of metallic gold.

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

I have two new necklace and earring sets from my ARTdornments line on sale! The first features a glass gem set in an elaborately sculpted frame, with crystals, and gorgeous glass beads in amber and golden yellow. (It is so striking in person, I was so tempted to keep it for myself!) It has the look of something that just came off a costume/period film, or like jewelry you might see in an antique painting!

The second piece features a fantastic old painting of a pair of Kakapo parrots. These unique large parrots are very unusual in several ways, and are the only flightless parrot! If you've never heard of them, I encourage you to look them up online and read/watch some videos, as they are quite interesting to learn about. Unfortunately Kakapo are critically endangered, but excellent efforts are being made to help the small number left to grow and thrive on several predator-free islands in New Zealand.

The necklaces are being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Tuesday, July 30.

I am happy to let you know that I'm doing another GIVEAWAY this month! The prize this time is from my ARTdornments line, and is a pendant featuring a lovely angel (shown at the top above).
