This is a mini curio display, natural world inspired, containing a mini faux hummingbird nest woven of wire and colored with enamels. It contains natural pearl eggs, nestled in the very lichen that real hummers use to construct their nests.

Inspired by hurricane Irene, throughout whose destruction we observed hummingbirds coming to our feeders. They brave the torrential rain and incredibly high winds to feed. I could not help but wonder about their little nests, how they possibly keep safe in such extreme conditions! This little bird's nest curio locket is my tribute to them.

Some water misting may be seen inside the case at first, this is a normal by product of the live lichen, it was constructed as a live terrarium. Eventually, the lichen will dry in place. Last photo shows other side of locket, which displays lichen only.

A perfect gift for a mother or grandmother...or someone who likes birds! Comes ready to hang on your own chain or ribbon with a large sturdy jump ring. Also makes a great display in a shadowbox or miniatures case.

case is approx. 1 1/2" tall and 1 1/2" wide, depth is about 3/8" with the bail on top, it is about 1 3/4" tall
made of nickel-free stainless steel and plexiglass

Hangs with a sturdy jump ring, you provide your own ribbon, chain or cord, to coordinate as you please
