Tania Tupu Kārearea necklace
This stunning necklace is by Nelson based jeweller Tania Tupu.
Love the way the angled Kārearea head is turned to give you a bit of a side-eye!
The New Zealand Falcon or kārearea is one of our most threatened birds of prey with less than 8,000 birds remaining.
Rarely seen and mistaken for the kāhu we need to be mindful and aware of what's happening around us and how our past persecutions and current ecological factors have lead to a decline in numbers.
Dimensions - pendant part is approx 9.6cm by 3cm, and the chain is 80cm long
This item comes packaged in a round Tania Tupu decorative gift box with a pine lid.
This necklace is handmade in New Zealand
