This limited edition Hihi Song Necklace is a real treasure, made with hand knotted pearls, a sandcast, brass medalian, with a elegant brass wing; a stunning work of art!
Emma Cunningham, New Zealand jewellery designer, has come up with a limited edition series in honour of our 30th birthday celebration.
Emma makes beautiful, sustainable jewellery from recycled materials from her home in rural Whanganui. She has produced a special collection of necklaces exclusively for Cranfields that are inspired by six native birds. “The dawn chorus is such a special start to every day and each necklace has been designed to emphasise the sacred nature of these birds, which are absolute treasures of the forest,” says Emma.
From the pearls and knotted silk, to the one-off sand casted moulds used to shape the precious metals of pewter, silver, copper, and brass, every aspect of these necklaces refers to how precious these birds are, making them the perfect collection for Cranfield’s 30th.
Cranfields donates $50 to Zealandia Wildlife Sanctuary's conservation fund for each Song Necklace sold.
Hand knotted pearls are approx 86 cm long.
