Bronny wanted a special gift for her mum’s 70th birthday and knowing of her mum’s love for the hummingbird she suggested that’s where the design process could start. “There is something magical about the way a hummingbird moves through the air, pausing with incredible precision to feed from a flower, their wings moving with such speed they are a blur – my mum just loves them.” she told me. I couldn’t agree more, a lover of nature myself, the hummingbird is one of my favourtie birds. I started with a few sketches and then carved out a couple of wax models. I wanted to make the detail in the wings particularly textured and special, so I made this my main focus. It was a delight to watch this little creature come into existence on my bench.
This hummingbird is made from 100% reclaimed/recycled sterling silver. It sits on a 45cm long sterling silver chain with a custom-made bone clasp. The surface has been highly polished, allowing a special glimmer. It comes gift packaged with detailed care instructions and silver polishing cloth.
Note – every hummingbird is handmade – no two are exactly identical.
“I have commissioned Laura to design and create several pieces for me and my expectations have been exceeded every time. Her passion for both the origins of materials and commitment to telling a story is in itself shear artistry.”
“My partner and I engaged Laura with the task of commissioning a unique piece of jewellery. Laura was loosely briefed by my partner and totally took the concept and ran with it. Communication was forthcoming with frequent updates along the way, including illustrations and photos of concepts. The final product blew all involved away! Couldn’t recommend Coral Covey any more thoroughly!”
“My favourite thing about Laura’s creations are that each piece is different. They are all uniquely designed and made by hand, so no two are the same”
