The Moluccan Cockatoo is an "old favorite", and it's been a few years since they were featured, so here they are!

The creations on auction for the next six days include the following: bracelet charm, charm with leash, choker necklace, pin, pendant on cord, glass beaded bracelet, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!

I also created a "Uniquely Preened" Moluccan Cockatoo pin, (not shown here) because our "plucky duckies" are loved too!


These one-of-a-kind creations are on sale this week on eBay and could make perfect Mother's Day gifts - or a gift for yourself!

This month, I am using Ebay Giving Works to donate a percentage of each of my auctions to Phoenix Landing, a non-profit, all-volunteer, organization that promotes and protects the welfare of parrots. To find out more about Phoenix Landing, visit their website: http://www.phoenixlanding.org


I had an informal "poll" on my Facebook page recently to see what birds everyone would like to see me make, and when the Spix's Macaw came up several times, I was inspired to give them a try! I had actually already picked the Moluccan Cockatoo as my Bird of the Month, but it's been so long since I have created a "new" bird that I've never sculpted before, so decided to have TWO different species for this month!

Did you know that the Spix's Macaw is one of the world's rarest parrots? They are extinct in the wild, and only around 100 or so are in captivity. Extensive efforts are being made to increase the population, and hopefully eventually bring them back to their native home in Brazil.

The Spix's Macaws on auction for the next six days include the following: bracelet charm, charm with leash, choker necklace, pendant on cord, pendant without cord, Rainforest design pin, glass beaded bracelet, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!
