huia feather earrings - black
The extinct Huia bird was sadly silenced before our generation could hear their song.
Revived in a pair of earrings symbolising how precious it is for all wahine to bring balance to the world while in positions of leadership. 
Tania Tupu is a jewellery designer and maker of contemporary Maori and Pacific inspired adornment. Quietly making jewellery for galleries across New Zealand, Australia and Pacific since 2006.  
  • A feather of a huia was given as a token of friendship and respect and worn by high ranking chiefs symbolizing leadership and mana.
  • The most sacred bird of all of Tane's children, graceful, vulnerable and socially quiet, a bird that bonded in pairs for life. 
  • Shaped like the tukutuku panels that adorn the walls of our wharenui 50 mm (H) x 10 mm (W) x 3 mm (D)
  • Each design comes in a keepsake jewellery box. Great for keeping your favourite designs and useful when traveling around Aotearoa or abroad.
