Handcrafted original Hummingbird jewelry. The diminutive hummingbird is found only in the western hemisphere, where they are known in Native American mythology as a symbolic messenger, sending messages to the people of things to come. Hopi and Zuni legends tell of hummingbirds intervening on behalf of humans, convincing the gods to bring rain. Because of this, people from these tribes often paint hummingbirds on water jars. The hummingbird symbolizes beauty, intelligence, and love.
The Ark Collection reflects our desire to connect with these animal totems and carry with us the qualities they embody.
