Birds are traditionally connected with the sky, and believed to be a supernatural link between heaven and earth and a symbol of beauty and purity. Birds have been a commonplace motif throughout the years, from The Arts and Crafts Movement with William Morris & Co's wallpaper and textiles to the contemporary crafter's use of the bird theme in home and giftware, and have always been a popular theme in jewellery.
The bird motif is always on trend, and this whimsical little creature never fails to look fab in pretty, girly designs or within pieces inspired by nature and the natural world. It also works wonderfully within wedding jewellery due to its delicacy and femininity; add it to bracelets or necklaces for the bride and bridesmaids or use bird charms in wedding decor designs. For something a little bolder and brighter, chunky bird beads are fantastic in more bohemian pieces; whatever your style, the bird motif can work wonderfully for you!
