Anna's Hummingbird Necklace
Here is my version of an Anna's Hummingbird for you to wear as a necklace. I hand carved the humming bird and then cast it into either sterling silver or bronze. The design is inspired by the Hummers that visit our home.
As hummingbirds are constant shape shifters - this to me is what they look like as they fly up to the feeder or flowers, using their tail to put on the breaks while they begin hover.
From tip to tail the pendant is 2 cm long. The necklace being worn in the image is on an 18" chain.
Tiny Chickadee on Olive Branch Necklace
Tiny silver Chickadees are cast in either sterling silver or Bronze and sit on a branch that is made from casting a piece of an olive branch trimming that I brought back from my travels to a little farm just outside of Bologna, Italy.
The pendant measures 2 cm (7/8 inch) across and 2.9 cm ( 1 1/4 inch) from top of the loop to the bottom.
Chickadee Earrings on Sterling silver lever backs
Here are two little hand carved Chickadees are cast in either sterling silver or Bronze and dangle from sterling silver lever backs
Wren Earrings on Sterling Silver Lever Backs

There something so magical about a song sparrow in spring! So many happy notes from such a humble little bird!
I carved and then cast a little Song Sparrow and it sits on a nest made from cast olive trees prunings that I collected when I was on a farm just outside of Bologna, Italy.
You can choose from a long thin chain - the medium curb at 30" or the link chain that is 24" at it's full length, handy for just popping over your head, it can also be clasped at 2" intervals, giving you many length options within one chain.
These Cheeky birds (aka Stellar Jays:) are regular visitors to our home ...or mabye it is their home and we visit..?, (but only as long as we keep supplying peanuts :)
Sterling silver and bronze with an open link bronze chain - soft rectangle for the medium and round for the large. Total length of the necklace is 22" at is full length but can be clipped shorter and because the pendant sits in the middle the clasp end doesn't slide to the front.
I add a clip with a little sterling silver song bird -choose from Chickadee, Wren or Nuthatch that can be moved around on the chain.
Bronze Olive Branch with Song Sparrow Necklace
For this necklace there is a fat little song sparrow sitting on a olive branch.
I carved the song sparrow and cast it into silver and the branch is from a pruning of an olive tree that I collected when I was staying on a little farm in Italy, once I got back to my studio I cast it into bronze.
The round linked bronze chain connects onto the branch and can be clipped shorter, in the photo the model is wearing it full length of 22" and because the pendant is attached in the center the clasp end doesn't slip around to the front. For the option of sometimes wearing it longer I include a 6" extender in the same chain.
The pendant part measures 1 1/4 "across.
Choose from Sterling Nuthatch, Wren or Chickadee for your toggle.
For this ring is a Sterling Silver Song Sparrow sitting on a nest made of olive branch prunings cast into bronze. The nest sits on a sterling silver softly rounded band 5 mm wide.

Anna's Hummingbird Earrings on lever backs
These little flying Anna's Hummingbirds dangle from secure sterling silver lever back hooks.
They are 18 mm from tip to tail.
For this ring a tiny bronze chickadee is soldered sideways onto a double band made of olive branch trimmings that I have cast into sterling silver.
This ring has a flatter and more subtle profile than the nester or nest rings.
The double bands of olive branches are 6 mm wide in total.
As with the other rings on my site, it is best to only order if you are sure of your size since there can't be any returns at this time. On the order form there is a space to specify your ring size and 1/2 1/4 sizes are all ok. I will make it for you exactly as you order.

Fledgling Anna's Hummingbird in Nest Necklace
The Fledgling necklace is how I imagine the baby Anna's Hummingbird that I met in our yard must have looked moments before it took it's first flight. Bursting out of it's tiny nest!
Measures 1.5 cm tail to tip.
There are two options for this necklace - bronze fledgling nestled in a silver nest or silver fledgling nestled in a bronze nest.
Both come on a fine sterling silver cerb chain.
