Happy Halloween

 

Killian was in a "modeling mood" the other day and kindly posed for a few photos. We all want to wish you HAPPY HALLOWEEN - have a fun and safe time! :)

Don't you love getting surprises in the mail? I had a nice one the other day - one of my lovely customers sent these pretty feathers to me, which were molted by her peacock. Aren't they beautiful? (Thanks again Dana!) Hmmm, maybe I will have to try sculpting a peacock one of these days!

Ravens



The Bird of the Month for October may come as a surprise, since it is not a parrot! It is my first time making a member of the Corvidae family, and I decided to choose the Raven as my Bird of the Month. (Kind of fitting for Halloween, don't you think?)

Did you know that Corvids (ravens, crows, magpies and a few others) are some of the most intelligent birds, showing self awareness in mirror tests, as well as tool building ability? Pretty impressive for a bird that is so common that we often don't give them much thought.

The collection is now up for auction on EBAY for the next 6 days and includes a bracelet charm, choker, pendant, pin, and a glass beaded necklace and earring set!
