The rare spotting of a hummingbird is almost like a magical experience, and maybe that's why it's been a spirit animal or totem to many cultures since ancient times.
Between flapping their wings incredibly fast and the humming sound they create, you would almost think they were more insect than bird. They can even hover while drinking nectar from a flower. And then there's the colorful iridescent feathers that give them that shiny, almost metallic look.
These earrings seem designed to capture the moment a hummingbird pauses for just a split second before darting off to the next flower. They're given a subtle antique treatment that accentuates the feathered wings.
