Tania Tupu is a jewellery designer and maker of contemporary Maori and Pacific inspired adornment. Quietly making jewellery for galleries across New Zealand, Australia and Pacific since 2006.
A feather of a Huia was given as a token of friendship and respect and worn by high ranking chiefs symbolising leadership and mana. The most sacred bird of all of Tane's children, graceful, vulnerable and socially quiet, a bird that bonded in pairs for life.
Lightweight rectangle Huia on sterling silver hooks.
