Reclaimed Metal Hummingbird Necklace

$210.00

Forged from 100% reclaimed metals, Yanapuma is so excited to share the brilliant and current creations of husband-and-wife design team Ashley & Dara of Alkemie Jewelry. Their unique work is equal parts art and accessory. 

 

The smallest birds in the world have fascinated people since ancient times.

The hummingbird is capable of flying long distances to reach the destination, this is why the hummingbird symbol is associated with endurance and perseverance. A hummingbird’s fly reminds us to be adaptable and accept changes.

The symbolism of the hummingbird is also linked to the idea of eternity and infinity. Bird’s wings move in the pattern of figure eight, the ancient symbol of continuity. 

Hummingbirds mean we must expect love, joy, and good luck. 

Chain is approximately 18” Long.

Handmade in Los Angeles, this design is Lead & Nickel Free. Made of 100% reclaimed metal in gold patina. The patina is made to appear as though they came out of a treasure chest!  If you wish to shine, brush with warm water and bleach-free natural cleanser. 

By creating new designs from existing materials in abundance, the mission is to translate something that would otherwise be landfill-bound into wearable art. These pieces are pioneers with hopes to change the jewelry industry with its social and environmentally responsible practices. Yanapuma loves working with this team as they too promote local living wages and eco-sustainable business practices.

Thank you for shopping with us!
