Earring design based on the distinctive native New Zealand Kereru (wood pigeon).
Solid recycled Sterling Silver or Copper with double sided design and finished with recycled Sterling Silver hooks with rubber stoppers for extra security.
The Kereru is a clumsy flier but has lovely colourful plumage and it is easy to get up close for a good look. The scourge of fruit orchards where they love to snack on the fresh blossoms of the trees in spring. They are an important seed disperser for native trees.
Earring Length: 41mm (1.6in), Hook length: 14mm (0.6 in).
By New Zealand designer Heidi Gilgenberg.
