I recently tried my hand at making molds of some of my sculpts, and they came out great! As a result, I'm creating a new line of molded pieces, and my plan is to offer a new species each month, if time allows! If you like the look of these pendants and want to purchase one in your favorite bird, drop me a note, or post on my Facebook page and let me know what species you would like to see me create and offer next!

This month, I started with an Eclectus and an African Grey, and created pendants from my new molds in a variety of finishes. They are all made from polymer clay, but have the look of Faux Ivory, Antiqued Silver, and Antiqued Pewter, which you can see above. (I also made several magnets in Faux Ivory which are not shown here.)

Because these pendants are made from a mold, I can offer them at lower prices than my one-of-a-kind sculpts. However, each one is still handmade, so will be individually created and will vary slightly from piece to piece. Most of these new medallion pendants are being sold without chain/cord, although I have several options if you prefer to have a necklace included with the pendant. I also created one of the African Grey pendants in a glossy black with metallic gold highlights (above right), on a romantic necklace with a some glass beads and matching earrings.

All of the pieces are on auction on eBay and end on Wednesday, December 11th: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

Happy Holidays everyone! I had planned to create another species for December's Bird of the Month, but Rush orders took my time! So instead I am offering you a Male and a Female Eclectus, since I had these on hand, and they are such perfect Christmas birds with their gorgeous red and green! In addition, I created a special pair of earrings made with feathers from my own Eclectus parrots! All of the pieces are on auction, ending on Wednesday, December 11th.


In addition, I HAD to make a few more "bird poop" pieces since you keep asking for more, to my great amusement! There is a magnet, necklace and a pair of earrings, all on auction on eBay. To see all of the pieces on sale, visit my eBay auction listings here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

 


There is also a Faux Ivory Goffin's Cockatoo necklace, as well a variety of "Infinite Love" themed jewelry including a pair of earrings, bracelet, and necklace.

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!
