One of the benefits of being laid up ill for so long a few months ago was that I had a lot of "couch time", in which I browsed through a LOT of great books. One in particular that inspired me featured historical jewelry, so it's no surprise that some of my newest pieces have a bit of that "flavor"!

Galah lovers will need to check out the Rose Breasted Cockatoo necklace! There is also a beautiful beaded necklace and earring set featuring another Waterhouse painting that I love.

The three other new necklaces do not feature images, but instead are sculpted around glass stones, some with Swarovski crystals embedded. The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22st.

I recently came across a great little owl stamp that was perfect for making a pendant, how cute is he? The owl pendant has an antique pewter finish, and his eyes are Swarovski crystals. All auctions this month are 5 days, and end on May 22.

 

 


You asked for more, so here they are! Two new "bird poop pendants" are on auction this week, one with a cord and one without.

It's Budgie time! I rarely offer budgies on eBay, since these are one of the most time consuming birds to make, but last month when I was finishing up some custom orders with budgies, I decided to go ahead and create a few for you! There is a full bodied budgie, a budgie face, and a "Kawaii styled" budgie. The budgies are being auctioned eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22.

I recently had fun playing around with an attempt to recreate jade and rose quartz in polymer clay! I've been working with polymer clay for nearly 20 years now, and the versatility this amazing stuff still continues to astound me. There is no end to the different looks that can be achieved with it!

There are four Faux Jade pendants featuring an Amazon, Cockatiel, Macaw and Eclectus. They are strung on chain with an antiqued gold look. There are three Faux Rose Quartz pendants featuring a Lovebird/Parrotlet, a Conure, and an African Grey, on silver chains. All of the pendants have a high gloss finish. (All white splotches on the birds are just light reflections!)

The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 22.

The Parrot Toy Angels Spring Auction is up and running - have you taken a look? You can find TONS of great bird toys, people products, gifts, and of course jewelry! I've donated the necklace set above (which features an image of a little girl holding an Amazon). You can make a difference with your bids - 100% of the auction proceeds go directly to help birds in need! The eBay auctions end on Sunday, so don't wait to get your bids in!
