Words from the craftswoman

This stunning statement feather ring features an individually hand-cut metal feather, and hand-drawn Maori kowhaiwhai patterns which are then etched into the metal to provide a relief pattern. Each design drawn is different to the others and is intended to represent the vast diversity of, and connection between, souls and spirits in this world and in others. The spirals, dots, lines and swirls tell the story of our history, our values and our family. The feather is symbolic of the Maori belief in birds as the sacred messengers of the Gods. They represent loyalty, adventure and devotion. This necklace is currently available in recycled sterling silver and available in 4 different ring sizes. The band, also etched, is approximately 3mm wide. This ring is delicate and lightweight and intended to feel as if a feather has floated down from the gods and rested upon your hand.
