On this national bird day, we are thrilled to be sharing behind the scenes photos and stories about the FashWand Wildlife Jewels® Birds Collection and the birds that inspired it!
Birds have always been a primary source of inspiration for Azi's designs.
Azi first started drawing birds at age 4! Our first Wildlife Jewels inspiration and painting started with Azi's original painting of a magnificent Six Plumed Bird of Paradise that she named Ruby. Shortly after painting Ruby, Azi painted over 200 birds! From birds of paradise, to parrots, songbirds, seabirds and many more...
Each painting from the FashWand Birds collection is inspired by a precious bird that is either endangered or extinct due to hunting, poaching, wildlife trafficking and habitat loss.
The collection also features native birds such as pelicans, burrowing owls, cormorants, gulls, and egrets who are under severe threats ranging from plastic pollution and oil spills, to fishing hook and other human caused injuries.
Azi photographs wildlife, then paints them, and transforms the painting into luxurious fashion and fine art pieces. Azi captures each bird's unique story and their special features and shares their amazing science-fiction like behaviors.
Not only are birds stunningly beautiful, they have also been the source of inspirations for a multitude of innovations. From bird inspired robots, to drones, autonomous helicopters, and improved airplane wings to so much more...
