I recently tried my hand at making molds of some of my sculpts, and they came out great! As a result, I'm creating a new line of molded pieces, and my plan is to offer a new species each month, if time allows! If you like the look of these pendants and want to purchase one in your favorite bird, drop me a note, or post on my Facebook page and let me know what species you would like to see me create and offer next!

This month, I started with an Eclectus and an African Grey, and created pendants from my new molds in a variety of finishes. They are all made from polymer clay, but have the look of Faux Ivory, Antiqued Silver, and Antiqued Pewter, which you can see above. (I also made several magnets in Faux Ivory which are not shown here.)

Because these pendants are made from a mold, I can offer them at lower prices than my one-of-a-kind sculpts. However, each one is still handmade, so will be individually created and will vary slightly from piece to piece. Most of these new medallion pendants are being sold without chain/cord, although I have several options if you prefer to have a necklace included with the pendant. I also created one of the African Grey pendants in a glossy black with metallic gold highlights (above right), on a romantic necklace with a some glass beads and matching earrings.

All of the pieces are on auction on eBay and end on Wednesday, December 11th: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

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 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!

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!

Hope this finds you all well, and enjoying the end of summer!

I was very tight on time this last month, so only was able to make one bird for September's Bird of the Month, which is the White Capped Pionus! I had hoped to create a few more pieces, but this species is one of the more time consuming birds to create, with many different colors, so in the end I only was able to make one.

This beaded necklace/earring set is on auction for the next 5 days on eBay, ending on Thursday! In addition, there are a few other necklaces on eBay this week. One is a new "Serendipity" pendant on eBay, this time in a pretty mix of maroon, red, white and blue, with ribbon cord necklace. There is also a cute Umbrella Cockatoo necklace. All of this month's auctions are on eBay for the next 5 days on eBay.
