Of course this little wearable garden needed it's own little hummingbird, so I've created a tag with hummingbird, ladybug, dragonfly and turtle charms. These are all symbols I like to incorporate in my work. I am fascinated by symbolism in the fine art and how the great master painters incorporated layers of symbolism in their work which reads like a narrative that can at once add layers to the original story of the painting, or maybe even a different, underlying story. I also love dream images and symbols and have kept a dream journal for many years. I think it is quite interesting to examine the images our dreaming self uses to communicate a story or message and I often use those same images in my art.
~The hummingbird can represent a messenger, they bring peace, love and happiness and because their wings move in a figure eight, the symbol for infinity, it also brings the energy of the universal flow.
~Ladybugs symbolize luck.
~Dragonflies symbolize a deeper understanding.
~The Turtle is a mother symbol associated with Native American culture.
These are all symbols that I have had come up repeatedly in my life and in my creative expression and I think they fit beautifully with this earthy, organic design. The tag has been signed and dated on the back, it is an authentic, one of a kind, wearable work of art. Enjoy and thank you for looking!

For cleaning, all that is needed is a gentle soak in tepid/cool water with a mild detergent, (I like Kookaburra Wool Wash, remind me and I'll include a sample) lay flat to dry.
