Disc of recycled glass cut with an image of the New Zealand Fantail (Piwakakwaka) fused onto the surface. Finished with handmade recycled Sterling Silver hooks.
The design is actually iron fused onto the surface of the glass hence the slight reddish colour.
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 rare native bird species in New Zealand that has managed to adapt 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.
Hook length: 19mm (0.75 in), Disc size: 20mm (0.8 in)
