Product Description
Hummingbird-Flower Bracelet

Hummingbirds are amazing flying jewels. Their radiant colors vibrate in the sunlight while they feed on the nectar of flowers. A flower and a Hummingbird are merged into one entity resulting in a unique bracelet design.

In the bracelet design I aimed at capturing the unique relationship between hummingbirds and the specialised, co-evolved flowers on which mainly the Hummingbirds feed. Hummingbirds are capable of sustained hovering, fly backwards and even upside down by flapping their wings up to 80 times a second. Such a rapid movement can only be distinguished in slow motion and then still it looks like if more than two wings are moving, more likely many wings all around them. This frozen moment in time inspired me to make the backside of the bird look like a flower (Silene) on which a hummingbird feeds, creating a chain of Hummingbird-flower-Hummingbird-flower etc. It emphasizes their co-evolution, one can’t survive without the other one, a harmonious symbiosis. The design makes people aware of this delicate wonder of nature.

The Bracelet consists of 5 separate Hummingbird-Flower sculptures that can be attached to one other like a chain to move freely and comfortably on the wrist. Each one can be used to open or close the bracelet securely using one hand. It’s flexible wing-leaves bend when the bracelet is pulled over the hand, to return to their original shape at the wrist. You can individualize the Bracelet by ordering 5 or more differently coloured elements and arrange them to your personal preference. By connecting even more Hummingbird-Flowers it is possible to make a necklace.

A nice video about Hummingbirds with David Attenburough can be seen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/life/Hummingbird#p00cn9h7
