Next week the hummingbird scouts will arrive in our area, and I’ll put out a feeder to attract them to my garden. They nest in the giant elm on the lawn and later in the summer it’s fun to watch them drop down from the tree and get a drink. My grandmother always hung lots of feeders when she lived in the country and my folks hang a few. It’s fun to sit out on the deck and have hummingbirds whizzing by your head. Hummingbirds in my neighborhood aren’t as visible until late in the summer when they start the feeding frenzy to bulk up for the long journey south.
Using the hummingbird as inspiration for the season of renewal we’ve rolled out three new urn styles that honor the energy and spirit of this tiny flighty bird.
Hummingbird Flight urn is solid metal with a deep emerald green mirror finish and inlaid with shimmering mother of pearl. The bird and flower glow against the dark background. This style is both sturdy and delicate and would work for either an adult man or woman.
Smaller in scale, the jeweled hummingbird is a wee metal sculpture that holds a pinch of ashes or lock of hair. Hand painted in bright colors and studded with sparkling crystals, the top of the hummingbird opens to reveal a storage chamber and seals with a magnetic closure.
If a lighter color palette is more in line with your taste, we also have jewelry styled in the image or the hummingbird in both stamped sterling silver and stainless steel to create a small personal tribute. Depending on your taste and style you can create a meaningful memorial that can be worn or displayed in the home.
