"Hummingbirds are a daily feature in our gardens, that's why I combined the image of the bird with the flowers and colors of Guatemalan gardens. What I like about hummingbirds is that they seem to be full of energy, they're beautiful and yet delicate," confides José Arriola. The talented artisan handcrafts the ornaments of ceramic and paints each one with acrylics with different themes. The six ornaments hangs from bright red ribbons, and the set arrives in a traditional cotton pouch woven on a foot loom.

"Bright and beautiful hummingbirds"

The hummingbird squadron is bright, beautiful and charming. Wonderful to hang on a Christmas tree or in a kitchen window (which is where I currently display my little hummers). The art work is wonderful and the packaging and gift wrap are great. The package arrived when expected and in excellent shape. The only suggestion I would have to the creator of these wonderful little ornaments is that it would be great if the painted designs were on both sides of the ornament. I have my hummingbirds displayed in a window which allows the wind to blow them around and I only wish they had the gorgeous painted design on both sides of the ornament for that reason. But these are such a great little squadron anyway! Cheers to the artist and to Novica !

"Very Sweet"

I can hardly wait for Christmas so I can hang these on my tree. We love hummingbirds and put out feeders every spring.

I purchased star ornaments for my best friend for Christmas. She, her husband, and each of her children were able to pick a star for their own. They loved it!
