Sitting Anna's Hummingbird- on Branch -Large
I remember the first time I saw one of our local Anna's Hummingbirds sitting on a branch outside our kitchen window. It felt like we had graduated from new-bee birders to one of the flock.
I have tried to capture the contented way they seem to me as for rare moments they just sit, looking totally at home.
I carved the sitting hummingbird 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 in total the necklace at full length measures 22", it can be clipped shorter. The pendant is attached in the center and the clasp end doesn't slip around to the front, so for this necklace I am using a nice big easy to use sterling silver spring ring clasp. For the option of sometimes wearing it longer I can include a 6" extender in the same chain, please include in the notes if you would like me to include some extra chain with your order.
The pendant part measures 1 1/4 "across.
Look to images of the similar song sparrow on branch necklace large to see how this necklace looks when worn.
