The white tipped black feathers of the now extinct Huia bird were worn by Maori chiefs (both male and female) as head adornments to signify great mana (status and authority).
Three little feathers (the largest is 24mm x 5mm), hand painted with porcelain paint in black, tinged with gold, and tipped with silver. Hanging from a sterling silver ring and ear hooks.
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.
