Normally, a finished piece of jewelry tells me its name. When that doesn't happen, I go through my extensive library of Greek and Celtic mythology, sci-fi and fantasy (yes, I speak Elvish...wanna make something of it?) and come up with something.
This necklace is giving me a hard time for some reason. I found some references to hummingbirds in Mayan mythology, but I don't think that Huitzlcoatl is really an inviting name for a piece of jewelry.
So, thanks to Erin from Tesori Trovati for giving me a link to a hummingbird site - including poetry about hummingbirds (who knew?)! This sparked a few ideas in my mushy brain, but now I can't decide which one I like best so I'm running another poll. Please help me decide on one of those OR if you hate them all, feel free to post your ideas in the comments.
