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!

With Independence Day just around the corner, I decided to create an assortment of red, white and blue parrots for you! There are a Vosmaeri Eclectus female glass beaded necklace/earring set, and bracelet charm, a Ducorp's Cockatoo glass beaded necklace/earring set, and a Hyacinth Macaw pendant necklace and face choker.

These pieces are being auctioned on eBay for the next 5 days, ending on Sunday.

In a break from my typical parrots, I created some "Flights of Fancy" birds this month! They are more whimsical, and created in a different way, using metallic pigments on top of stamped and textured surfaces on the pendants. A silver glass leaf bead adorns each pendant, and the bird's eyes are black agate. I think of these pendants as wearable mixed media collage!

These particular birds loosely represent: African Grey, Moluccan Cockatoo, Conure, Cockatiel and Hyacinth Macaw. Beautiful glass beads in color schemes of pink, navy blue, and hints of yellow make up all of the necklaces, except for the Moluccan, which is beaded in pink and yellow.

These five unique beaded necklace/earring sets are being auctioned on eBay for the next 5 days, however these Flights of Fancy necklaces DO have the Buy it Now option for immediate purchase.

This month, instead of just one species, the Bird of the Month is an assortment of birds, in a unique style! I experimented with a polymer clay that has the look of stone, and the pieces have the look of carved granite, in muted colors, with coordinating beads in earthy tones.

There are six "stone bird" necklaces up for auction,, which include four glass beaded necklace/earring sets featuring a Conure, African Grey, Macaw and Cockatiel. There are two necklaces on cord (without beads) featuring a Goffin's Cockatoo and Amazon.

The low starting bids are a whopping 50% off the regular price of beaded necklaces on my website, so here is your chance to snag a GREAT deal!

Please note that ALL of this month's auctions are only going for FIVE DAYS, instead of the typical week. The auctions end on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.


There are two other necklaces on auction, including this Yellow Naped Amazon necklace and a "Flights of Fancy" parrot necklace. The bird could be a lory, lorikeet, quaker parrot, grey cheeked parakeet, or other brotogeris, but the species is really up to your imagination!
