How gorgeous are these handmade feather brooches!
The NZ Huia bird is now sadly extinct, and this stylised version is an homage to this precious, lost treasure. Made from rimu and is hand painted in black and white. It's been sealed with beeswax to protect it.
The brooch is approximately 9cm x 2.5cm.
This is an original design from "Natty", a Wellington based textile designer who showcases native NZ flora and fauna in her extensive body of work.
All her work carries the NEW ZEALAND MADE trademark with pride.
This item is handmade, in New Zealand
