July Bird of the Month: The Parrot

Since it is summer, my newest jewelry collection has been called the parrot.  I wanted to use a variety of bright colors and that has parrot written all over it.  There are so many species of parrots that are just covered with different bright colors.

One thing that really stands out to me about the parrot is their intelligence.  Parrots not only have a wide range of vocal skills (check out this video) that allow them to imitate humans, but they can problem solve and answer questions.  Has anyone read the book Alex and Me?  I haven't read it yet, but it is about a parrot and looks very interesting.

Here are some of my pieces I have been working on for this collection.  There is much more color and style variation in this collection compared to my previous ones.  I'm hoping to add some parrot paintings soon.
