Wow, I can't believe January is coming to an end already! I hope you all have had a wonderful start to the New Year! The month has been rather eventful, and time got away from me. The Bird of the Month for January is the Toco Toucan, and there is a beaded necklace with striking glass beads, and matching earrings. This month's jewelry is on auction for five days, ending on February 4th.

I'm happy to let you know that I have THREE new species added to my new line of molded medallion pendants! This month, I am debuting the following species, on sale on eBay: Aracari/Toucan, Conure, and Umbrella Cockatoo! There are three pendants of each species, in each of the color finishes which include pewter, antique ivory, and antique gold. Black cord necklaces are available for $3.00 additional if you want a necklace added, just let me know before you send payment. To see all of the pieces on auction, visit my eBay listings here: www.ebay.com/sch/parrotjewelry/m.html?_ipg=50&_from&_nkw&_armrs=1&_sop=10"

In addition, I have stocked my Etsy shop with more of the medallions in the African Grey and Eclectus styles (not shown here), check them out at: www.etsy.com/shop/AliciasCreations



CUSTOM ORDERS

I'm not able to take regular custom orders right now, but will be updating my website with new custom order pricing for the new year throughout the next month or two. Once I have the website updates finished, I will put the order form up and let you know when I am ready for custom orders again!

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 recently had a request on Facebook to create a Vasa parrot, and it's not a bird species that I've ever had an order for before, so I was fascinated to read about how unique they are among parrots. Not only does the female actually change her feather colors during breeding season, but she molts her head feathers out, and the skin on her head turns yellow!

So while I had another bird in mind for this month's Bird of the Month, I ended up creating the Vasa instead, after being inspired by all of the photos that I found while reading about them! It's always fun to sculpt a species that I've never created before!

In addition, there are several round pendants on sale this week, including two mini-pendants (conure & macaw) starting at just $9.00! I created another owl pendant with Swarovski eyes, and a new design that has a Caique type of parrot face. All of the jewelry is being auctioned on eBay for five days, ending on Tuesday, July 30.

I know there are a lot of you who are anxious to be able to place custom orders again, and I want to thank you for your patience and understanding with the health issues that I'm still experiencing. I had planned to resume accepting a limited number of orders this month, but ended up not feeling well enough. So, we'll see how things are in August, and hopefully I'll be able to get back to custom work then!

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.
