Hummingbird Jewelry - Perfect for Spring

Readers of my blog know that I have a fondness for figural jewelry, which is shaped like animals and fun shapes. It comes in all types of jewelry but brooches seem to be the most popular. If the piece features anything from a person to an animal to a clown, it's thought of by lovers of jewelry jewelry to be a figural.

Birds are a popular motif in figurals and nothing heralds spring quite as much as a hummingbird does. With its long beak and pretty colors, these lovely birds hover in mid air as they feed and are the only bird able to fly backwards!

The pretty hummingbird above seems to be doing just that. In vivid blue and green enamel with clear diamante rhinestones, it seems to change purpose. Wear it upright for the back ward flying pose, and shift it just slightly to the lest and it looks as though it is feeding. It's available as the feature piece from Vintage Jewelry Lane for only $49.99.

Hummingbirds come in all sorts of colors and these hummingbird pins are no exception. Here are few more pins and earrings. They range in price from $7.50-$24.99.

All of these styles are available from either Vintage Jewelry Lane or Carolina Collections Vintage Jewelry. Just click the pictures to go to the item pages for more details.
