The hummingbirds are back!.
As for this little fellow, I made him by reticulating and carving recycled silver, then soldered on the hand forged wings and feet. For the wings, I soldered wire to sheet, and used a repoussé technique to give it a folded, feathered appearance.
The hummingbird pendant hangs on a leather cord with handmade chain at one end so that it is adjustable. The cord/chain is 15-18" in length. The bird itself is 3.5" wide and 1.5" from head to tail. The beak protrudes .5" (know that you shouldn't hug someone while wearing this piece!).
This is a one of a kind sculptural necklace.
