A peaceful Kōtare necklace cleverly cast in sterling silver from an original Tania Mallow carving, finished with a sterling silver chain and clasp.
The Kōtare (Sacred Kingfisher) is a native treasure to New Zealand. These talented fishers are spotted near waterways silently contemplating and have a reputation for their silent and calm demeanor. Tania's design captures the peaceful features of this enigmatic bird perfectly as he looks over his shoulder and smiles sweetly.
The bird range has a beautiful weighty feel. Like many of Tania Mallow's other pieces they are created with comfort and quality at the forefront. Materials are not spared on her jewellery and wearing them feels amazing. This necklace is enhanced by a skillful oxidization technique which brings the carved lines to life.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% pure silver. The alloy composition results in a metal that is very durable and long lasting. Sterling silver is easily polished using a polishing cloth. Tania Mallow jewellery is certified sterling silver.
Material: Sterling silver
Measurements: 34mm x 18mm x 2mm

Handmade by Tania Mallow from her Beachlands studio in New Zealand.
I love my kingfisher pendant and earings. They are recognizable from a distance and I have had many comments on how lovely they are.
Bought this necklace for my wife's birthday. Beautifully crafted and was delivered when they said it would be. She loves it.
