Large Sterling Silver Mixed Metal Hummingbird Necklace
This mixed metal necklace features a colorful hummingbird hand cut from a honey tin and riveted to a sterling silver background that has been hand cut to outline the form of the hummingbird. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The pendant measures approximately 1-1/2" x 1-7/8" and hangs from a 24" oxidized sterling silver chain.
The hummingbird has minor marring due to the condition of the salvaged piece of metal that was used.
This piece was created for the 2019 Deja Vu Art and Fine Craft Show in celebration of America Recycles Day. The show featured 60 professional artists creating work made from recycled or repurposed materials. My work won Best of Show at this event in 2018.
