The Aliens have landed….ie in jewelry form…..


This series of charm bracelets were inspired by a jewelry client who requested a custom alien themed bracelet. I didn’t have the charms for this theme so I had to source for them. Well, the charms finally arrived and I had a ball with them. I added handmade glass cabochon and picture frame charms to the lot and the titles of these bracelets are as follows:

“I believe in Aliens”, sort of magical wonder, inspired by ET

“I Come in Peace”, a sort of happy, cute sort of bracelet where aliens are the Disney type of aliens and finally

“Alien Invasion” an industrial style darker idea of aliens.


Meet my Furry Family


MJ aka Floppy cat. Light shaded/dark chinchilla silver exotic short hair boy cat. MJ is 4 years old. First photo is of MJ as a baby.

MJ’s registered name is The Bird & I Michael Jackson. He is show quality but we never showed him. He arrived at a time when we no longer take part in the cat fancy. Besides, he is nothing like his name sake for he is anything but graceful….hence his nickname of “Floppy”



MeMe is the resident queen of the house hold. MeMe is a black,  exotic short hair. Her registered name is Champion Doll Like’s Look at Me. We titled MeMe at a cat show in PA around year 2003. Me Me turned 11, May of this year. MeMe came to us from Russia.


Latest Shipment-The Bird & I Store


Some of the items, I spent the last week preparing  for yesterday, Friday, shipping. They range from mostly commissions to sales from Etsy Store. and Ebay. I worked on GACKT (j-rock musician, singer) themed bracelets, earrings to Junjou Romantica themed handbag accessory and earrings, to Buck Tick (J-rock /visual kei band)  themed items as well as Rurouni Kenshin (anime Samurai X) themed bookmarks, key chains etc.

Also Sold, Buck Tick inspired bracelet “Gothic Romance II” , Viewfinder (anime/manga, yaoi) themed bracelet from Store amongst other things. So last week turned out to be a really busy week after all……though I am looking forward to a less hectic pace and stocking up Store for the Fall. Or maybe I should just go for a mini vacation!
