I recently created a piece that has truly been one of the most fun filled projects of my year! It is a whimsical light switch plate, with a special mouse perched on top.

I've been experimenting with inserting "real whiskers" on some of my non-bird creations, and am excited with the realism that it adds!

To see photos of this piece as a work in process, as well as to read more about the REAL mouse who inspired it, take a look at my Facebook album here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150286355248729.349182.137935228728.

Besides all kinds of birds, my custom work has included Dogs, Cats, Horses, Elephants, Marmosets, Chinchillas, Bushbabies, and now Mice - I wonder what's next? :)

What a surprise, I am still giggling over this! My "Bird Poop Jewelry" was chosen to be featured in a slideshow on the Fox Small Business website, with the topic of Bizarre Business Ideas. You can take a look at the slideshow through the following link: http://smallbusiness.foxbusiness.com/slideshow/entrepreneurs/2011/08/09/eight-bizarre-business-ideas



To celebrate, I've made a new batch of "bird poop jewelry", and have put them for sale on eBay this week! Buy It Now options are available on each piece, so you don't have to wait until the auctions are over to snap one up. There is a bracelet charm (not shown), a pin, a pendant, a pendant on cord and a magnet. The auctions end next Saturday, take a look and have a laugh! :)



Also, I had some colorful scrap clay this month, so I've whipped up a few pretty pendants! Each one-of-a-kind bird has a glossy finish. The first bird is a smaller parrot with a charm that says "Laugh", and the second is a macaw type of parrot, with the species up to your imagination, holding a charm that says "Follow your dreams"! Both necklaces have a Buy It Now option, and are on auction until next Saturday, unless the Buy It Now option is used!

The Bird of the Month this month is a bird that I've never made before, the Golden Conure, also known as the Queen of Bavaria Conure! There is a beautiful glass beaded necklace and earring set, as well as a pendant on cord without beads available for purchase on eBay.

Both necklaces have a Buy It Now option, and are on auction ending next Saturday, take a look!
