Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Wings -  Leather Pendant by windfalcon Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Wings -  Leather Pendant by windfalcon
Someone on my Facebook page suggested I try making a pair of hummingbird wings for my next pendant. I was excited to do something iridescent! These wings are a little smaller than my regular wings, at 3.25" each wing instead of 3.5".

It is hand-carved from 7 oz. leather, and unlike my other pendants, doesn't have an extra leather layer on top, so it's all one piece of leather. It has a sterling silver chain and clasp, and is available in my Etsy shop: [link]

How come I never saw this! You're on my watch list!
I was looking for hummingbirds wings reference on Google Images for a sculpture project and this showed up. And it was yours!
It's a great design. Honestly, I wish I had this idea first. XD It's very elegant.

Gorgeous work! How long does it take you to make a pendant like this?

These came out great. Thinking of doing any other hummingbirds? I wonder if there's a way to subtly incorporate the male's gorget colors into the design.
