Crossed Sterling Hummingbird Skulls Necklace
The delicate image of the tiny, lightning fast hummingbird, (weighing only the weight of a penny), is paired conjoined with a twin, their beaks crossing to form a protective talisman over your heart. These two symbols are then further joined with luminous sterling silver, metal found deep in the earth, and known for its qualities of retaining memory.
Here the hummingbirds act as guardians, a symbol of the afterlife and higher consciousness. Cast immortal in sterling silver and forever conjoined at their beaks, oxidized to my obsessive shade of gloomy gray.
Hummingbirds measure 1 3/4 inches wide and 1 inch long on a 18 inch sterling bar link chain, measure about 10 inches on each side.$150 @ Blood Milk Jewels
