This Jade ring is of a stylised Huias head. The Huia are an extinct native New Zealand bird. The male had a short beak like a crow but the females had a beautiful curve. I would have loved to see some, what a loss.
I made this Jade ring out of some fine black Australian Jade. It is almost totally opaque but has a nice dark green glow around the edges when held up to the light. Size 7 3/4.
