Maori admired the diminuitive Kotare (Sacred Kingfisher) for its alert sentry, quickly diving from a lofty perch to attack prey in a sudden blur. These watchful guardians of the forest have brilliant electric blue, green and creamy yellow feathers.
Sterling silver feather (2.5cm long), handpainted in vivid blue and aqua porcelain paints. Suspended from a 45cm fine sterling silver chain, with a 5cm extender.
Each feather is individually handpainted, so no two are identical. Each necklace is one of a kind.

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.
