Rara avis is Latin for 'rare bird' and the phrase is used to mean a rarity. The collection is inspired by the natural history of imaginary lands.

These colourful feather earrings are made from silk dyed with plants, pleated and smocked. They are light to medium blue with some green near the centre.

Delicate and light, the feathers swing from handmade round earwires. All metal is antiqued sterling silver.

Size: the feathers are 4 cm (1 1/2 inches) long and 2.5 cm (1 inch) wide. With the earwires the earring is 6 cm (2 1/4 inches) long.

As with all textiles, storing the earrings out of direct sunlight is recommended to keep them at their best.
