Hummingbirds

Here is the first hummingbird necklace, made using green wire, green glass leaf beads, purple frosted flowers and two golden hummingbird charms. The photo really doesn't do the necklace justice - the colours are much prettier in real life, the wire not so dark, and the light shines through very attractively. Each large flower has three gold wire stamens (had to look that up to make sure the right word was used!), two with clear glass beads on the tips, one with the hummingbird. Further leaves, flowers and beads carry on half way up the neck , the rest of the chain being simple green wire. It tinkles as you wear it like tiny, tiny windchimes - now that is a selling point as far as I'm concerned; to me, jewellery that makes a good sound is just as important as how it looks! £22 + p&p SOLD

I have eight hummingbirds left and more purple flowers as well as some smaller fuschia coloured flowers, so there will be more variations on the theme. I think tinkly earrings will have to be made, even if they are only for me....

Surely they should hum, not tinkle!

Love this, it really is so pretty and I'm a bit of a sucker for anything with a bird on it.
