I've made another "scrap clay" pendant, this time in red, white, and blue! This bird resembles a macaw, and has a glossy finish.

I gave myself a little challenge to come up with a new way to use some broken and scratched beads, and the bird on the right is the result!. I turned each bead around so the "good side" was facing up, and then surrounded each glass bead with clay, with a silver metallic finish. I was going for a Congo African Grey, can you tell?

I also have an assortment of about a dozen new magnets from my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art line, and while I don't normally auction these on eBay, I decided to give it a try this month! I am starting bids off lower than what they will be listed for in my Etsy shop, so if you want to snag a great deal, be sure to take a look!

All pieces shown here (PLUS more that I just didn't have space to show) are running for 5 days, and end on June 27th - unless they end early with Buy It Now!

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 bright colors of summer always make me think of Sun Conures - one of my favorite vibrant birds to sculpt! This Bird of the Month collection is larger than usual this time, with a magnet and pair of post earrings! I rarely ever offer earrings on eBay, so if you've been waiting for some, don't miss this chance!

On auction are a magnet, bracelet charm, charm choker, post backed earrings, pendant, and beaded necklace/earring set. All of the pieces are on auction for the next 7 days on eBay, ending on Friday the 17th!

 

CUSTOM ORDER NEWS:


From now until January I will be cutting back on the number of custom order requests that I draw in each month's custom order "lottery drawing". Unfortunately I'll only be able to draw one or two a month (from each month's "pool") until after the holidays. Hard to believe, but the custom gift rush has begun, and I have to give priority to the increasing number of VIP/Rush orders.

In addition, I am busy developing a new line of jewelry that I'm really excited about! Hopefully in a month or two I'll be able to give you a sneak peek!

So, while this means your chances of having your custom order request in the monthly lottery will be reduced until the new year, you are always welcome to place a VIP/Rush order if you would like to have a custom order accepted and worked in! VIP orders do cost more than the regular custom orders, but instead of waiting for your chance in the monthly drawing, the VIP orders get worked in ASAP. Please note that I will only be accepting a limited number of VIP/Rush Custom Orders each month, so if you are serious about having a custom piece created in time for Christmas, it is important that you place your order by the end of September.

The Bird of the Month this month is the majestic Hyacinth Macaw! There is a beautiful glass beaded necklace and earring set currently on auction, with a Buy It Now option on eBay.

There are also three African Grey pieces, a bracelet charm, a charm with a "leash", and a magnet, as well as an Umbrella Cockatoo choker. They are all on auction for the next week, with Buy it Now options, take a look!


On August 1st I began accepting VIP (Very Important Parrot) & Rush custom orders through my website. This option was put into place due to the demand that I was receiving from those of you willing to pay more to have a custom order worked in quickly, instead of waiting for a chance in my monthly "lottery drawing".

I've been surprised by the number of VIP orders I am receiving, and as a result, the number of monthly "lottery" requests that I take on the first day of each month is reducing as I give the VIP orders priority.

Because of this, I wanted to give you a bit of a "heads up" notice if you were thinking about placing a VIP order. The closer we get to the holidays, the tighter my schedule becomes with gift requests, and the less likely it will be that I will be able to accommodate all of the VIP Order requests.

If you planned to order a special custom gift in time for the holidays, please place your VIP Order as early as you can. More details about how the VIP/Rush Custom Orders work and the Order Form can be found here: VIP Orders.
