These Recycled Glass Earrings are sure to get comments with their iconic fantail image, by our resident artist Indigo Wise, fused onto the surface.
The design is iron fused in our kiln onto the surface of the glass, hence the slight reddish colour. Every step of the making is done by us here in the StoneArrow workshop, starting from core-drilling the discs from bottles, to being finished with handmade recycled Sterling Silver hooks.
Did you know Pīwakawaka chicks are fed every ten minutes, that’s about 100 times per day. Some human mothers who remember feeding teething babies, will empathise. The fantail is a native bird species in New Zealand that has managed to adapt well to the impact of humans upon the environment.
They can live anywhere from coastal areas to alpine areas. Although predators such as cats, rats and stoats take their eggs, Pīwakawaka make lots of eggs, many of which will survive and become the sweet, resilient birds we love.
