Solid recycled copper earrings cast in the image of the iconic native New Zealand and Australian Fantail (Piwakawaka). Flame oxidised to create a rich red finish. Double sided and finished with recycled sterling silver hooks and rubber stoppers for extra security. These playful birds love to follow you though the bush singing and alighting on nearby branches. The jury is out whether they just like hanging around people or are chasing bugs that have been stirred up by their feet! Hook length: 14mm Earring Length: 19mm (nose to tail).
All my jewellery is designed and manufactured in my workshop by myself or my employee. I use only New Zealand sourced Jade and also Paua and Beachstones in my designs, as well as copper and Sterling Silver. My designs have a very NZ/Pacific flavour and "you can never have too many spirals" is my motto. Stone Arrow provides for the income of the Feint family Nick, Sybille, Theo and Marty as well as for several local workers. "We are committed to being a socially and environmentally sustainable business and are a member of the NZ Sustainable Business Network.
