Happy Halloween! I hope you are enjoying fall as much as I am! The trees are in full color here, and I love watching the ever changing works of living art right outside my studio windows.

The Bird of the Month necklace is a holiday themed set, and features a Lutino Cockatiel perched on a Halloween pumpkin. The necklace is strung with glass bead and handmade clay "candy corn" beads, with matching earrings! There is also a Lutino Cockatiel bracelet charm, with a glossy finish.

Like last month, I had hoped to create more pieces in the Bird of the Month species, but custom orders have kept me so busy! There are still a few openings left for VIP/Rush custom orders before the holidays though. (Keep in mind that the VIP/Rush Custom Orders are double the regular cost, but do get your order worked in ASAP, without having to wait for the chance to potentially be picked for the monthly custom order drawing.) For more information, see the following page on my website: http://parrotjewelry.com/viporderform.html

All of this month's pieces are on auction for the next 5 days on eBay, ending on Tuesday!

These new creations were made using rubber stamps impressed in black clay, then highlighted with metallic pigment powders for color, and embellished with beads. They have a unique and eye catching look that is hard to capture in photos!

I've made these as magnets, which can be easily altered to also use as ornaments if you prefer. Some of the larger ones also look fantastic in my magnetic display frames as well, as wall or table art.

The birds represented resemble a Blue and Gold Macaw, Male Eclectus, Blue Headed Pionus, White Bellied Caique, Black Headed Caique, a sculpted Lovebird on a cage, and a Senegal. Tthese pieces are on eBay until Thursday. (Any unsold pieces will then be listed in my Joy Magnet Art Etsy Shop.)

With Thanksgiving here, it's a wonderful reminder to reflect and focus on all that we have to be thankful for. It can be so easy to get overly busy and caught up in holiday preparations, that I sometimes catch myself taking my blessings for granted.

One of the things I am most thankful for is YOU, my amazing customers and "fans", who continue to be such a wonderful part of my life. I truly appreciate your business, your friendship, and the inspiration and joy that you bring me! Killian, Kaleena and I wish you and your flocks a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Trick or Treat! Halloween is just around the corner, and I have created a few special necklaces for you! There is a Lutino Cockatiel necklace, with a Jack O'Lantern pumpkin, and "candy corn" beads and earrings. In addition, there is a cute little Ghost necklace set, which has a starting bid under $20! There are Buy It Now options on these two necklaces.

Warm holiday greetings and wishes for a Happy New Year to you all!

What a year it has been here! Our flooding this summer certainly was the big event of the year, but things have been gradually getting back to "normal" more and more each month. I am so thankful for all of the blessings that have come about this year, and that my family and loved ones are all well. We have so very much to be grateful for, and are looking forward to 2011 with great anticipation!

Killian and Kaleena always insist that I make some Eclectus creations for you every Christmas! They are quite proud to be so perfectly colored for the holiday, and love modeling for me, so it has become an annual tradition now I think! Here is the selection I have created for you this year!


Up for auction are a Male Eclectus bracelet charm, Male Eclectus cell/purse charm (not shown), Male Eclectus charm for necklace, Male Eclectus charm choker necklace, Male Eclectus pendant (no cord), Male Eclectus pendant on cord, Male Eclectus glass beaded necklace/earring set, Female Eclectus pendant on cord, and a Female Eclectus glass beaded necklace/earring set.

Please note that these items are on auction for the next THREE DAYS (not a week, like usual) as well as having a Buy It Now option for those of you needing to get them quickly for gift giving! Go to my eBay Store to see the entire list of new items available!

 

CUSTOM ORDER NEWS:


Well, at long last, I'm coming to the end of what has sometimes felt like a never-ending list of custom orders that have kept me so busy over the last few years! Within the next month or two, I will be having the first opening for new custom orders since 2009!

Just a handful of custom orders are left for this year, then I will begin updating my website with new pricing, adding more current example photos, and some other much needed updates. I will send out a newsletter in January with the exact date that I plan to put the order form up, so that you will have a little time to plan ahead and get ready to place your custom orders.

Thank you again to all of you that have been waiting so patiently for your chance to place a custom order! I am looking forward to working with you this coming year!
