Unique to New Zealand, the Tui bird is a boisterous and colourful character, feeding on nectar and singing complicated songs throughout forested New Zealand. It is recognisable for the white feathery tuft under its beak, and its iridescent green/ blue/ black feathers.
Sterling silver long thin feathers (33mm long), handpainted in iridescent greens and blues, and hanging from sterling silver earhooks.
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.
