I made this piece after I did a unit on birds with my high school students. They researched and painted a bird, and I wanted to make a bird that I could wear. I experimented with making it smaller than my usual work, because hummingbirds are so small, and I wanted the piece to be delicate. It worked really well. The hummingbird's eye is a teeny tiny cubic zirconia. The piece is a choker, made from sterling silver PMC and finished with sterling snake chain.
