to create a variety of jewelry objects

Find in the Present

Back to today, with the development of the times
For the protection of the kingfisher
The traditional technique of Kingfisher Feather Art is no longer practiced
How can the technique be passed on?
In fact, this traditional craft has not been lost
Nowadays, more and more alternative materials for kingfisher’s feathers are emerging

There are many materials can be used in place of kingfisher’s feathers

As people saying
the key to the inheritance of Kingfisher Feather Art
lies in "the inheritance of memory".
It's not about the harshness of the material
