This Bird of the Month is a bird that I've never sculpted before, and have been wanting to tackle for some time. After continuing to receive requests, I decided to go ahead and pick this bird for November, and it is the Green Aracari! They are Toucanets (like "mini toucans"), and I found that the males in this species have a black head and the females have a brown head. I created a male Green Aracari beaded necklace set, and a female Green Aracari on a cord necklace, and both are on auction now, ending on Friday, November 22nd. Be sure to take a look at my ARTdornments jewelry too as there is a piece featuring a pair of Green Aracaris as well.

I have an assortment of various new pieces of jewelry on sale this week! There are two "Infinite Love" necklaces, featuring a hand in the American Sign Language pose for "Love". I was commissioned to create a bunch of these for an event earlier in the year, and made a few extra that I thought I would offer to you too!

There are two parrot necklaces, one that was an experiment with a new clay, and looks a bit like an African Grey, with a golden/brown wash. It could be any species that your imagination can see! Then there is a Red Bellied Parrot necklace in my "regular" style.

While I normally do not use molds with the majority of my work, I recently found a fantastic mold that makes lovely realistic leaves, so I had to give it a try! I was so thrilled with the results. I created a pair of earrings with the beautiful lightweight leaves, which are in translucent earth tones with bits of metallic gold.

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

After several months without a Bird of the Month collection, I'm thrilled to be back with some new creations for you this month! I've chosen the Senegal parrot for October, and there are three necklaces on auction on eBay, ending on Friday.

In addition, there are an assortment of other new pieces on auction this week, including an abstract silver swirl pendant, a Serendipity ("scrap clay") parrot, two Congo African Grey necklaces (one Fall themed), and another owl pendant.

I recently had a request on Facebook to create a Vasa parrot, and it's not a bird species that I've ever had an order for before, so I was fascinated to read about how unique they are among parrots. Not only does the female actually change her feather colors during breeding season, but she molts her head feathers out, and the skin on her head turns yellow!

So while I had another bird in mind for this month's Bird of the Month, I ended up creating the Vasa instead, after being inspired by all of the photos that I found while reading about them! It's always fun to sculpt a species that I've never created before!

In addition, there are several round pendants on sale this week, including two mini-pendants (conure & macaw) starting at just $9.00! I created another owl pendant with Swarovski eyes, and a new design that has a Caique type of parrot face. All of the jewelry is being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Tuesday, July 30.

I know there are a lot of you who are anxious to be able to place custom orders again, and I want to thank you for your patience and understanding with the health issues that I'm still experiencing. I had planned to resume accepting a limited number of orders this month, but ended up not feeling well enough. So, we'll see how things are in August, and hopefully I'll be able to get back to custom work then!

This was a fun experiment! I played around with "faux leather" effects last month, and made this unique parrot pendant, which I based on an Eclectus shape.


Here is one of my faux ceramic "test" pieces which I decided to string up on a simple string necklace - starting bid is just $9.00!


This pretty necklace set features a Flights of Fancy parrot in turquoise green (which could be an Amazon, Caique, Pionus, or whatever your imagination can see!) on copper chain with some gorgeous accent beads.


I've also listed more magnets from my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art line on eBay! 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! I only had room to show one here, so be sure to take a look at all of my eBay listings to see everything!

All of the auctions are running for 5 days, and end on Tuesday, July 30th, on eBay.
