A delightful Miromiro earrings cleverly cast in sterling silver from original Tania Mallow carvings, finished with sterling silver hooks.
These petite Miromiro (Tomtit) earrings perfectly capture the North Island Tomtit in all its minute wonder. The wee bird's fine features are brought to life through Tania's skillful etch work and carving skills which are captured on both sides of the necklace.
Miromiro are one of our tiniest endemic birds and have a comical nature due to their large heads, squat bodies, and short bills. Though their presence is fairly common in the New Zealand forest you are more likely to hear them than see them. The next time you are on a bush walk and hear the sound of a squeaky wheelbarrow take a moment to search for the Miromiro’s distinctive black and white markings, you will be delighted.
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.
