A BIT ABOUT ALICIA

Little Alicia w/ Chickens! Thanks for stopping by to meet me! To see what I'm currently up to, check out my Facebook Page or my blog.

I have always loved animals, and birds in particular, ever since I was little. There was always a special connection, and animals of all sorts seemed to be drawn to me, and I to them. I grew up in the Philippines and had some unusual pets, besides the normal cats and dogs; I had pet goats, pigs, native lizzards, and chickens. I would have loved to have a monkey too, but my parents had to draw the line somewhere!

My dream to have a parrot finally came true when I purchased a cockatiel at age 11. I began learning as much about parrots as I could and have been fascinated with them ever since. Since then I have had other birds through the years, from a finch to a rescued blue and gold macaw. I was blessed to have an amazing and incredibly special Eclectus parrot for several years, who impacted my life tremendously before he passed away from a perforated gizzard, which was a heartbreaking loss.

I now have two gorgeous feathered friends that bring me so much joy and laughter. Both are Soloman Island Eclectus Parrots, and I cannot imagine life without them! Besides their stunning beauty, they constantly amaze me with their intelligence and wonderful personalities. Please go to the RESIDENT MODELS page to meet Killian and Kaleena, who are the inspiration for my work!

Birds

Maisie, Maggie and Teddy!

I can't leave out my furry friends! I have three adorable poodles, who were all adopted from various situations. They have each come a long way and are all healthy and happy now. Thankfully, they are wonderful and gentle around birds. They all get along beautifully and bring so much happiness to my life!

In the 1990s, at a particularly difficult time with my health, I discovered polymer clay and began sculpting art dolls/figurative sculpture. I was thrilled to find something fun that I could do, even with my limited energy. Shortly after, I began sculpting parrot jewelry as well. I also started figuring out how to create websites and opened ParrotJewelry.com and have been amazed and thrilled with the response to my work! Who would have ever thought that a person could stay so busy making parrot jewelry?

As the years have passed, the demand for my custom parrot jewelry has grown by leaps and bounds, and because of this I am forced to limit the number of custom orders that I take every month, in order to keep up with them all. I'm truly humbled by the many requests I receive, and do my best to create as many custom orders as I can.

Occasionally I have non-custom creations for sale, and enjoy experimenting with various techniques and mediums. Every month or two, I list a few new items for auction on eBay.

Also, I have two shops on Etsy, with parrot jewelry as well as some of my more whimsical artwork and non-bird items, so be sure to take a look if you would like to see some of my other creations that may currently be for sale.

The first shop is Alicia's Creations on Etsy, where you can find some different jewelry, light switch plates, and a few other creations.

The new Etsy shop is Joy Magnet Art, showcasing my latest line of creations, affirmative art magnets. For more photos and the story of how I was inspired to create these unique pieces, please visit the new website: www.joymagnetart.com

Alicia & Louie

I believe that my passion for parrots is evident in my work- I love creating unique art jewelry for other bird lovers, it is a "dream job" indeed. I have met so many wonderful people through my work! Many customers have gone on to become my dearest friends, which is something I am most grateful for!

I feel very blessed to be able to do something that I truly love and enjoy, and I am happy to be able to share some of my artwork with you.
