This piece embodies BLACK JOY - we need to read more of it in books, see more of it in films and support it across all artistic/social/cultural platforms. I chose the hummingbird, the universal symbol of joy, to depict this idea. Not only is the hummingbird representative of joy, but it also signifies a literal lightness of being (most hummingbird species are said to weigh less than a penny!). The black community deserves to feel joy and a lightness of being every single day. This pendant is made from sterling silver. The hummingbird sips from a trumpet flower, each intricate piece sawed out by hand. A bright green chrysoprase stone acts as the bird's shimmering green wings as it flits about looking for sweet nectar.
