I've come up with a new name for my "scrap clay birds" - Serendipity Parrots! The whole thing began as a "happy accident" a few years ago when I smooshed up a blob of many tiny bits of scrap clay, and realized that the outcome was so striking, and I've been enjoying making them ever since. I never know how they will turn out, and the result is always unique! I usually get enough "junk clay" at the end of the month to make a few birds, but I've been extra busy the past month, so there were a lot more clay bits to play with!

This time however, I had a little trouble with the gloss finish on a few pieces, and had some tiny air bubbles. They are not very noticeable, and they do not affect the durability or wear of the pieces. However, being a bit of a perfectionist, I'm not completely happy with them, so I'm starting the bids lower than normal on these three pieces, which resemble a Conure, Ringneck, and Cockatoo


There are also two cockatiel pieces on eBay this week, a normal face choker, and a Flights of Fancy necklace in lime green/grey/black, below. All pieces are are on auction for the next 7 days on eBay, ending on Friday the 17th!

Well, it's springtime at last here in the midwest! I wanted to do something bright and cheery, so have chosen a lovely yellow bird for this month's Bird of the Month, the Lutino Indian Ringneck Parakeet!

The creations on auction for the next six days include the following, (one each in both a male AND female version): bracelet charm, choker necklace, pendant on cord, glass beaded bracelet, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!

Only the male Ringnecks are shown in the picture here, so please see my auctions to view the Lutino females too! There is one Blue Male Ringneck charm also on sale this week.

With Easter just around the corner, I have two special pieces for you just in time! There is an adorable blue Budgie Easter Basket Pin, and a Male Lutino Indian Ringneck Easter Basket Necklace, both on auction this week on eBay.

 

Here is another one of my "scrap clay parrots", made from bits of leftover clay and formed into a uniquely colored bird! This one is a pendant on a cord, with some glass beads embedded on the bird.

To celebrate the arrival of Spring, from now until the 31st, I'm having a Spring Sale in my eBay Store! All "Buy it Now" items are 5% off, stop by and have a look!

The Bird of the Month is a the striking Alexandrine Ringneck! I haven't made any of these for a while, and my website was needing some new "models", so here they are! Like last month's Rosellas, these Ringnecks are a more complicated bird to make with many colors to blend, but they are certainly a beautiful bird.

The collection is on sale for the next 5 days on eBay! There are a male and a female charm, male choker, male pin, female pendant on cord, male beaded bracelet and male beaded necklace/earring set.

Also on auction this week are some new "Bird Poops", a Congo Grey charm, a Moluccan Cockatoo choker, and a beaded Double Yellow Headed Amazon charm necklace with earrings.

 

I'm also having a sale on all store items - I've applied a 5% discount to EVERYTHING in my eBay Store through the end of the month! This means that all of the "Buy It Now" items are on sale, so if you've had your eye on something there, now is the time to snap it up, as I don't anticipate doing these store sales very often. You can go to my eBay Store to see what's currently available.
