I recently tried my hand at making molds of some of my sculpts, and they came out great! As a result, I'm creating a new line of molded pieces, and my plan is to offer a new species each month, if time allows! If you like the look of these pendants and want to purchase one in your favorite bird, drop me a note, or post on my Facebook page and let me know what species you would like to see me create and offer next!

This month, I started with an Eclectus and an African Grey, and created pendants from my new molds in a variety of finishes. They are all made from polymer clay, but have the look of Faux Ivory, Antiqued Silver, and Antiqued Pewter, which you can see above. (I also made several magnets in Faux Ivory which are not shown here.)

Because these pendants are made from a mold, I can offer them at lower prices than my one-of-a-kind sculpts. However, each one is still handmade, so will be individually created and will vary slightly from piece to piece. Most of these new medallion pendants are being sold without chain/cord, although I have several options if you prefer to have a necklace included with the pendant. I also created one of the African Grey pendants in a glossy black with metallic gold highlights (above right), on a romantic necklace with a some glass beads and matching earrings.

All of the pieces are on auction on eBay and end on Wednesday, December 11th: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

I have an assortment of various new pieces of jewelry on sale this week! There are two "Infinite Love" necklaces, featuring a hand in the American Sign Language pose for "Love". I was commissioned to create a bunch of these for an event earlier in the year, and made a few extra that I thought I would offer to you too!

There are two parrot necklaces, one that was an experiment with a new clay, and looks a bit like an African Grey, with a golden/brown wash. It could be any species that your imagination can see! Then there is a Red Bellied Parrot necklace in my "regular" style.

While I normally do not use molds with the majority of my work, I recently found a fantastic mold that makes lovely realistic leaves, so I had to give it a try! I was so thrilled with the results. I created a pair of earrings with the beautiful lightweight leaves, which are in translucent earth tones with bits of metallic gold.

All of the pieces are on auction on eBay and end on Friday: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

After several months without a Bird of the Month collection, I'm thrilled to be back with some new creations for you this month! I've chosen the Senegal parrot for October, and there are three necklaces on auction on eBay, ending on Friday.

In addition, there are an assortment of other new pieces on auction this week, including an abstract silver swirl pendant, a Serendipity ("scrap clay") parrot, two Congo African Grey necklaces (one Fall themed), and another owl pendant. To see all of the pieces on sale this week, visit my eBay auction listings here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

I've made another "scrap clay" pendant, this time in red, white, and blue! This bird resembles a macaw, and has a glossy finish.

I gave myself a little challenge to come up with a new way to use some broken and scratched beads, and the bird on the right is the result!. I turned each bead around so the "good side" was facing up, and then surrounded each glass bead with clay, with a silver metallic finish. I was going for a Congo African Grey, can you tell?

I also have an assortment of about a dozen new magnets from my Joy Magnet Affirmative Art line, and while I don't normally auction these on eBay, I decided to give it a try this month! I am starting bids off lower than what they will be listed for in my Etsy shop, so if you want to snag a great deal, be sure to take a look!

All pieces shown here (PLUS more that I just didn't have space to show) are running for 5 days, and end on June 27th - unless they end early with Buy It Now!
