Kereru make a distinctive heavy wing beating sound as they fly through New Zealand forests, foraging for native berries.
Sterling silver feathers (3cm long), handpainted with iridescent porcelain paint in greens and blues, with a white curling koru. Hanging from sterling silver earhooks.
Nicki Cliff is the creative force behind Lily Griffin Jewellery. “I’ve been very lucky to have a wonderful upbringing in New Zealand, and I’ve loved taking a fresh look at our country’s natural diversity to find inspiration for my New Zealand Natives Range.” Lily Griffin jewellery is designed and handcrafted by Nicki in her tiny studio at home in Auckland, around working part time and looking after her energetic and expressive two year old girl, Lily. Incredibly Nicki is a self taught jeweller. She models designs in fine silver and then casts them in sterling silver, adding touches of colour to some pieces with porcelain paint. We love her pieces for their delicate beauty and the fact that every piece is painstakingly hand made, her attention to detail is evident in each petal and every tiny brush stroke..
