Indulge in the elegance of a meticulously crafted Red Admiral Butterfly necklace by Tania Mallow. This exquisite piece, hand-pierced from sterling silver, captures the vibrant essence of New Zealand's endemic red admiral butterfly, known as kahukura in Māori, translating to "red cloak." Once abundant, these butterflies face a decline due to the removal of their host plant, Ongaonga, considered a weed in urban areas.
Tania's personal tribute to the Red Admiral reflects her encounter with this majestic butterfly during a nature walk, inspiring the intricate details of its wings meticulously cut from silver. The butterfly gracefully adorns your chest, symbolizing the hues of New Zealand – the red of the Pōhutukawa and the iridescence of Paua.
This Red Admiral Butterfly necklace is a wearable testament to the beauty of nature and craftsmanship.
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.
