Jana Reinhardt Hummingbird Necklace Review
I was delighted to recently receive a beautifully delicate Jana Reinhardt sterling silver hummingbird necklace for review purposes. Hummingbirds remind me of our exciting road trip around the USA two summers ago so I have fond memories of these amazing little birds and the people we stayed with when we first spotted them.
Apparently hummingbirds are believed to represent resilience and strength of being, both of which we all could do with heaps of at the moment. You may like to wear this necklace to remind you to keeping on hanging in there no matter what you are facing.
The necklace comes beautifully presented in a gorgeous gift box which consists of a slide out drawer within a sturdy casing. The necklace is protected beneath a plush little cushion and both box and cushion feature cute little looped ribbons for ease of opening.
A brochure is enclosed which features information about the business, their product range and their creative processes.
About Jana Reinhardt Jewellery
Jana Reinhardt jewellery designs are inspired by nature and the naive art movement. Every piece is handcrafted by the award-winning goldsmith duo Jana Reinhardt and her husband Ross Cutting. Reinhardt and Cutting don’t use machine manufacture, preferring the old techniques of wax carving and fabrication to create their jewellery, so that every piece is unique.
These traditional methods do not have a negative effect on the environment, and all metals used are from accredited suppliers based in the UK and Germany. These suppliers are chosen as they continually buy back and recycle scrap metal, thus helping to create more environmentally friendly jewellery. These factors ensure that Jana Reinhardt is a more sustainable choice for jewellery lovers.
My thoughts on the Hummingbird necklace
I love the delicacy of this tiny little piece and the look of it when wearing it. The hummingbird sits prettily at the base of your neck when the chain is worn on its shorter setting.
I also love the smooth feel of the the bird and the curve of the tiny body when I rub it between my forefinger and thumb. As the pendant is three dimensional the necklace is reversible – you never need to try and figure out which way round to put it on!
There is a clever little counter weight at the end of the chain which falls down your back, this helps to keep the hummingbird centred and prevents the fastening loop from sliding around to the front.
This pretty little piece gives the impression of being made to the highest standards and would make an ideal gift for someone special.
