A month or two ago, I looked at a book about polymer clay mosaics, and was instantly in love. I knew I had to try making some of my own, so I pulled out my clay, and got on quite a roll! I ended up spending days and days making hundreds of unique little tiles. I found it to be a wonderful way to mix and match a wide variety of techniques, and had so much fun! Needless to say - I'm utterly hooked!! I've already made several pieces as gifts, and am excited to be offering this Female Eclectus as the first mosaic for sale on eBay.

The interior mosaic section measures 8x10, within a decorative black wall hanging frame. Each little tile is unique, and several have words or phrases, including "Love, Hope, Bird Friend, Eclectus Parrot, Fly, Sweet, Happiness, Adore, How Beautiful it is to Be Alive". The sculpted parrot was made without molds, and is adorned with a Swarovski crystal eye, glass leaves and a jeweled floral adornment. The piece took so many hours to complete that I simply lost track of counting, and the starting bid reflects just a portion of the time that went into it. The eBay auction ends on Thursday, however there IS a BUY IT NOW option, so you can snap it up immediately if you don't want to wait for the auction to end! (One a bid is placed, the Buy it Now option disappears.)

Want to see more of my mosaics? I've just created a new photo folder on Facebook with pictures of the other mosaics that I've created so far:

I am hoping to be ready to return to accepting custom orders again in another month or two, and when I do, I may take requests for custom mosaics at that time! Let me know if you would be interested in one!

Yesterday marked the first day of summer here in the USA, with the 4th of July just around the corner, so I've created an assortment of red and blue birds for you in honor of Independence Day! The Bird of the Month is the Red (Moluccan) Lory. There is a full bodied pendant, a lory face choker, and a beautifully beaded necklace and earring set.

Earlier this month I dabbled a bit in creating faux ceramics in polymer clay, which was really fun! I plan to play around more with this technique in the future. There is a faux ceramic Budgie and a Cockatoo (could be a Goffin's or Ducorps, what do you think?), on auction this week. All of the jewelry is being auctioned eBay for five days, ending on Thursday, June 27, unless they are ended early with Buy It Now!

In addition, I am doing another Giveaway! Enter to win the red Faux Ceramic bird necklace shown below, on my website at: The contest runs through July 13th and is open to my newsletter members in the USA & Canada - good luck!

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!
