Navajo jeweler, Hector Goodluck, made this special hummingbird necklace. There are 15 hummingbirds carved from either mother of pearl, or gold lip mother of pearl. They are strug between heishi with a bit of turquoise to bring a bit of color. This necklace reminds us of the photos of migrating hummingbirds clustered around many hummingbird feeders on their great migration. More about hummingbirds below - and, yes, they are very special beings.
Size: 28" Long. Largest hummingbird is .25" H x .75" L
Hummingbirds are fierce defenders of their families. Many Indigenous people consider them to be messengers between this world and the spirit world. And, in some tribes they are considered to be “love medicine”.
