Copper Tui earrings

 

Solid recycled copper earrings cast in the image of the iconic native New Zealand Tui bird. The copper has been flame oxidised to a rich red and they are finished with recycled sterling silver hooks and have rubber stoppers for extra security.

Hook length: 14mm or 0.6in.  

Earring Length (wingtip to wingtip): 22mm or 0.86 inches.

Tuis are extremely boisterous and race around the sky chasing each other as well as having a lovely song.  They look very understated from a distance but close up the multi colour sheen of their feathers is amazing and they have a distinctive white tuft (poi) under their chin.
