Hummingbird Skull Necklace
Even though I live in prime hummingbird habitat, I never in my wildest dreams ever expected to acquire a hummingbird skull to replicate. Out of the blue, one of my raven skull customers approached me about making her a hummingbird skull pendant from one that had died naturally in her backyard cedar tree. Sara sent me the deceased little hummer, branch and all.(see last picture) This petite skull measures 1-1/16" long not including the bail. It is only 1/4" across at the widest part of the cranium and weighs a mere 2 grams. Every tiny detail of the original including the bone texture has been captured in the bronze duplicate. If allowed to tarnish, the polished bronze will gradually take on the patina of an old statue.
