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!

I hope you are having a lovely Spring, and have had a wonderful Easter and Passover! I've been enjoying the jonquils outside my window next to my sculpting table, as well as watching the beauty of the trees starting to bud with leaves. Each day brings something new to enjoy outside at this time of the year!

I was not able to make a Bird of the Month collection for sale this month, however, I do have a new "scrap clay" necklace for you! It is on auction on eBay for the next week. A portion of the final sale price will be donated to the Oasis Sanctuary Foundation.

For those of you interested in placing a Custom Order Request, the entry form is on my website here: I draw a limited number of custom orders on the first day of each month. (You can read the full details about the current system of placing custom orders on my website.)

Also, some of you have been asking about the "VIP Custom Order" option, as I had planned to have it set up this month. Due to some health issues that came up this month, I wasn't able to work on it, so this addition will be postponed until next month.


In honor of Mother's Day just around the corner, I'm having a sale of 5% off through May 31st, on all eBay Store items! There are still several unique pieces available for immediate purchase in my eBay store, including this Congo African Grey face charm necklace. To see all items that are available, visit my eBay Store.

I have also listed a whimsical blue African Grey necklace & earring set in my Flights of Fancy style, from my own personal jewelry collection, on eBay. The bird holds a charm with the word "Believe", and is beaded up with some gorgeous glass beads in periwinkle blue, silver, grey and black. The set is on auction for the next week, with a low starting bid!
