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.

What a colorful batch of Serendipity parrots I have for you this month! I ended up with a lot of scrap clay recently, and while I had absolutely NO intention of making so many "scrap clay pendants", they simply decided they had to be made I guess! So here are 13 incredibly unique parrot pendants, in beautiful spring colors, with bits of silver leafing adding some sparkle!

The Serendipity pendants for sale this month could represent a wide variety of species, it is really up to your imagination - however I did base some of the shapes on: African Greys, Macaw, Cockatoos, Conure, Budgie, Parrotlet, Eclectus, Quaker, Amazon, Cockatiel, and more. See if you can pick your favorite species out!

The necklaces are all being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Wednesday, May 1st. However, I have offered a Buy It Now option on each of these pieces, so if you can't wait for the auctions to end, you are welcome to go snap one up before the bids start!

I really LOVE making jewelry in my Flights of Fancy style! This particular bird could represent a Quaker, Conure, or some other species - what do YOU see? The pendant is so striking in black and shimmering green, with silver and gold highlights that are picked up in the glass beads. The set is really stunning in person!

There are also three other unique creations new on eBay, with a totally different look!


I sculpted a little budgie pendant in a "Kawaii style", what do you think? Also up for auction is a bright yellow Cockatiel face bracelet charm, as well as another one of my "scrap clay birds"! This one has yellow, black, and various other colors striping around. All of the jewelry is being auctioned on eBay for the next 5 days, ending on Monday.

It's been quite a few years since I have made any Lory or Lorikeet species, and I was needing some new photos for my website, so I picked the Rainbow/Green Naped Lorikeet as the Bird of the Month! In addition, I created a few other Lories that I've never made before! It is incredible how very many lorikeet species and subspecies there are, all of which are so beautiful, I had a hard time picking just a few!

The jewelry on auction for the next THREE DAYS include the following: Rainbow bracelet charm, Rainbow choker necklace, Rainbow glass beaded bracelet, Rainbow pendant, and a Rainbow glass beaded necklace/earring set! There is also a Scaly-breasted Lorikeet glass beaded necklace/earring set, and a pair of Chattering Lory charm dangle earrings!

Besides the Lorikeets, there are also some other new pieces, including the Green and Yellow Christmas Budgie shown below, a blue Budgie not shown, and several new humorous "bird poop" items!

I am offering a Buy It Now option this time for those of you wanting to purchase items quickly for gift giving! Please note however, that once an item receives a bid, the Buy It Now option disappears. (So, to make an instant purchase without waiting for the auction to end, you must snap up the item before it has bids.) Go to my eBay Store to see all of the creations available!

Don't forget, there is a sale on my inventory of eBay Store items until Christmas! There is still time to snap up some unique gifts for your bird loving friends!

Here are some new one-of-a-kind creations that are on sale this week on eBay!

 

Lutino Cockatiel Necklace - holding a pink heart, on pink cords and ribbon

 

Male Eclectus Pin - created with a metallic shimmery finish!
Unique "Mystery Bird" Pin - created with scraps of leftover clays

 

I've being receiving so many custom order queries every day, so I thought I would give you all an update as to how my current line-up of work is going. At this point, I still have approximately 7 months more of custom order requests from last year yet to fill. I am working my way through and drawing from the stack of requests that have been waiting, and creating as many as I can each month.


Once all of the outstanding waiting requests are filled, I will be taking a bit of time off to do some website updates, and at that time will determine when I will be open for new custom orders in the future. Whenever I have openings again, and can accept additional custom orders, I will post the news through my newsletter, Facebook, and this blog!
