Handmade earrings of the extinct Huia bird sadly silenced before our generation could hear their song.

Wearable handcrafted 3 Dimensional Huia bead. 

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.
