My most recent project was designed for a friend who is in the process of navigating an international adoption. She told me a story of the hummingbird symbol that has become important in their adoptive community, and I designed a necklace for her based on that story.

Components include gun metal wire and chain, glass leaves and flower buds, white jade "eggs", and silver hummingbirds.
