    Tania Tupu's handwoven Huia Necklace of the extinct Huia bird sadly silenced before our generation could hear their song. 

    • Wearable handcrafted 3-dimensional Huia bead woven together with double-sided silk ribbon and finished with an adjustable toggle.
    • A feather of a huia was given as a token of friendship and respect and worn by high ranking chiefs symbolizing 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.
    • Mangopare black and cream mixed beads teamed with Huia mustard disc.
