THE DOCTOR BIRD JEWELRY COLLECTION
Celebrate the wealth of Jamaica’s beauty through earrings, bracelets, and necklaces inspired by Jamaica’s national bird, the Doctor Bird, or Swallow Tail Humming Bird which lives only in Jamaica. These birds’ beautiful feathers have no counterpart in the entire bird population, and they produce iridescent colors characteristic only of that family. In addition to these beautiful feathers, the mature male has two long tails which stream behind him when he flies. For years the Doctor Bird has been immortalized in Jamaican folklore and song.
The pictures for this collection were taken on the trunk of a lignum Vitae tree – a tree which the Doctor Bird delights in for the sap of its attractive flowers.
