I live in what is known as the hummingbird capital of the US. One of my daily joys is watching the hummingbirds dart in and out from among the cactus and other plants in my yard here in Arizona. This necklace is a tribute to that, with its hand carved turquoise hummingbird in flight, and the unusual barrel beads made from cholla cactus capped with turquoise. The cholla is surrounded by spiny oyster discs and nuggets of Fox Turquoise. Finished off with a beautiful handmade copper clasp.
The necklace measures approximately 24 inches long, not including the hummingbird focal. The hummingbird measures approximately 2 inches by 2 inches, and the unusual cholla cactus barrel beads approximately 1 inch by 3/4 inches.
