A cheeky, inquisitive little bird, the Piwakawaka (New Zealand Fantail) darts swiftly around forest and garden with a welcoming chirrup. In Maori mythology, the Piwakawaka is a messenger between worlds.
Sterling silver fanned-out feathers (2.5cm long). The inner two feathers are handpainted with porcelain paint in bronze tones with white tips. Hanging from sterling silver earhooks. Each feather is individually handpainted, so no two necklaces will be identical.
Nicki Cliff is the creative force behind Lily Griffin Jewellery. Lily Griffin jewellery is designed and handcrafted by Nicki in her tiny studio at home in Auckland. Her gorgeous range is named after her energetic and expressive children, Lily and Griffin. 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 handmade, her attention to detail is evident in each petal and every tiny brush stroke.
