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 recently had the opportunity to finally visit the Iowa Parrot Rescue! It was a great experience, and I took some photos to share with you! This amazing rescue has placed over 600 birds, which is particularly impressive considering that most come to the rescue with behavioral issues and other problems.

Go to my Facebook Photo Album to view more photos from my visit. To read more about the rescue and learn more about how you may be able to help, please visit their website at: http://www.iowaparrotrescue.org

It has been a while since I've had cockatiels on eBay, so I picked the Lutino Cockatiel for this month's featured bird. This particular bird will always be special to me, since a lutino cockatiel was my very first bird as a child!

The cockatiels on auction for the next six days include the following: bracelet charm, choker necklace, pendant on black cord, pendant with pink heart on pink cords, magnet, pin, glass beaded bracelet, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!

 


To take a break from orders once in a while, I love creating designs with whimsical birds, and I call them my "Flights of Fancy" pieces. I recently found these fun, funky, bumpy lamp work beads in beautiful blue and light purple, so I just HAD to make up some birds to match them! The clay was impressed with stamps and designs, then highlighted with silver metallic powers for a nice shimmer. Silver wire and beads accent each bird, and each bird is unique even though they are all created in the same color scheme.

The five "Flights of Fancy" necklace & earring sets on auction for the next six days include the following species loosely represented: a Macaw, two Budgies, an Umbrella Cockatoo, and an Eclectus shaped bird. There is a Buy It Now option on each of the Flight of Fancy sets, so if you want to snap one up, you won't have to wait a week for the auction to end!



There are also a few new Sulphur Crested Cockatoos on auction this week: a bracelet charm, a choker necklace and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!

I'm happy to have a new computer now and am in the process of adjusting to Windows 7, learning my way around the new programs, and getting a feel for everything just in time to squeeze out the January Bird of the Month before the month ends!

This month's bird is the Citron Crested Cockatoo, and the creations on auction for the next seven days include the following: a bracelet charm, mini magnet, choker necklace, pin, pendant on cord, glass beaded bracelet, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set. I have also listed a new Greenwing Macaw choker and pendant.
