A striking black bird with a white band across its tail feather tips, the prized Huia bird was hunted to extinction. Huia were regarded as Tapu (sacred) by Maori, and the wearing of the beautiful feathers was reserved for people of high status.
Sterling silver feather (3cm long), handpainted in black porcelain paint, tinged with gold, and tipped in white. Heart shaped koru detail on the tip of the feather. Suspended from a 45cm fine sterling silver chain, with a 5cm extender.
Each feather is individually handpainted, so no two necklaces will be identical.

Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
