Little Gladiators (Hummingbird) Earrings
Little Gladiators, Hummingbird Earrings
Solid Sterling Silver Earrings, Patina, Glass, Hook 1 1/4" x 1/2"
Humming birds are like small gladiators, fighting one another to see who can have total control over a single feeder. Their jeweled bodies sparkle as the sunlight glances off feathers of startling hues just like the red patina carefully applied on their throats. These special guys come with their own beautiful glass flower. Hummingbirds are migrants to the southern part of Alaska and year round residents in Arizona. I love their flying prowess, reminiscent of equal parts helicopter and bumblebee. Hummingbird wings do not flap but rather they move in a figure-8 pattern, captured within the design, which allows them not only to move backwards but also hover.
