made by my 13 year old hummingbird 
My thirteen year old has been looking through some old magazines of mine and found this project in one of them.  She didn't have the right supplies to make the item as pictured in the old Bead and Button mag...
humming bird made by my 13 year oldI told her to make it with what she had who cares if it was designed one way and she made it another.  I think it came out great her art teacher at school wants her to put it in the art show at the end of the year she was excited about that.  The wings are wired so the bird can hang in different positions which is sort of neat in my opinion was supposed to be a small necklace made out of seed beads according to the pattern but as you can see it is hanging on an ornament hanger so it is much much larger than a necklace.  second photo is washed out first it truer to the colors of this.

Update Sept. 27, 2011: some want to know what issue of bead and button it is from the April 2002 issue #48  pages 58-61


  1. how pretty! your daughter did a wonderful job on this beautiful hummingbird! I wish I could find the directions to make it! my mother would love to have this to hang in her window!

  2. added that info to the post maybe you cab find it n ebay or something like that or back order the issue

  3. Tell your daughter she did a beautiful job! Very nice!

  4. We own the copyright on this bird (as well as the others on our site). Bead & Button condensed the pattern dramatically. But you can get the pattern and kit for this bird and other birds on our site. www.beadedpatterns.com
