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!

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!

The Bird of the Month for February is the Goffin's Cockatoo! This collection was meant for January originally, but due to illness I had to take January off (thus the absence of auctions or blog posts last month) - so I'm happy to be able to offer them this month for you!

There is a bracelet charm, charm choker, pendant, and beaded necklace and earring set. All of this month's pieces are being auctioned on eBay for the next four days, ending on Friday, February 8th. Also, please note that there IS a Buy It Now option on every piece, in case you would like to get something in time for Valentine's Day!

I have two new ARTdornments necklaces for you this month! On the left is a piece that features a painting that I've loved for many years, showing a beautiful lady in flowing purple robes, feeding a sparrow. The image is titled "Libra and Her Sparrow", by Sir Edward John Poynter, from 1907. It's set in a hand sculpted frame, with a great cut-out shape where you can see the image set under thick glass. The frame has an antiqued silver finish, with 6 amethysts adorning the chain.

On the right is a necklace featuring a painting titled "Golden Angel" by Polish Artist Teodor Axentowicz. The frame has a very pretty design, with an antiqued gold finish. Beautiful speckled glass beads, as well as some lovely fire agates make up the necklace, with matching dangle earrings included. (Please see the listings on eBay for many more photos showing the details.)

Both necklaces are being auctioned on eBay, ending on Friday, with a Buy It Now option. I also have four pairs of sweet old fashioned charm earrings left (not shown), and am auctioning them at discounted prices this week!
