Ibis (Bin Chicken) Stud Earrings

The ibis, perhaps better known as the "bin chicken," has become an icon in Australia. For those who are curious about this peculiar nickname, it is related to their habit of rummaging through garbage in urban areas. Many of them have become particularly brazen in their attempts at stealing food from humans.

These earrings are a cute tribute to our ibis friends. Marble black acrylic and a swirling white with a hint of gold sheen adds a bit of glamour to an otherwise dorky creature. These studs are petite yet still statement!

✧ Due to the nature of individually handmade items, there may be small imperfections present. Though we have taken care to capture the true colours of each pair, colours may vary on different screens.

✧ Designed and handmade in Brisbane

Care Instructions

  • Avoid wearing in water. Extended exposure to water could have an adverse effect on the finish and the stability of the earring post.
  • Avoid handling with excess oily product on your hands (moisturiser, sunscreen etc)
  • Do not bend or put unnecessary pressure on your earrings
  • Do not drop or handle roughly
  • Storing your earrings on a stand or in a box will help protect them while you're not wearing them and keep the earring posts safe from damage
  • Always handle the earring post gently and remove earrings carefully
  • To keep the acrylic shiny and free from fingerprints you can buff your earrings with a jewellery polishing cloth or microfibre cloth

Returns & Refunds

Due to the nature of handmade items, there may be slight imperfections present in your pieces. We do not exchange or refund items for imperfections of this nature.

Purchases of sale items, seconds, samples or discontinued pieces are final. No refunds or exchanges can be made.

Jewellery: For hygiene purposes, we do not offer exchanges or refunds if you change your mind about your purchase. This includes pre-order items that have not yet been dispatched. If you make a mistake during your order and contact us quickly to rectify it before we send it out, we will do our absolute best to help you out.

We only offer returns or exchanges for items that are damaged upon arrival (damaged during transit) or if we have sent an incorrect item. To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be unused, in the original packaging, and in the same condition that you received it. We may ask for proof of purchase, and will usually require photos of the damage and the packaging to confirm return eligibility.

Once we have received the damaged item, we will process the refund or send your replacement item. If we do not receive the item, we cannot process the refund/exchange.

In a special case refund/return, we charge a 10% restocking fee which will be deducted from the refund.

We do not offer refunds or exchanges for items that have been damaged by you or broken after regular use. However, if you do damage or break your piece, please contact us so that we can advise if the damage is fixable, and direct you in its repair. In some cases, we will be able to conduct a repair for you. You will have to send it back to us and we will post it back once fixed. We don't cover shipping for this service, and there may be a small fee for labour and materials.

Clothing: If we keep the products in stock, returns and exchanges can be processed for damaged or incorrect items (proof must be provided), but also sizing issues and change of mind. Postage is at the customer’s expense in the latter cases. 

We cannot provide exchanges for preorder clothing items.

Love love love

I am a huge fan of all things Bluey, especially bin chickens!! I was so excited to get these! They are beautiful and lightweight. I plan to wear them tomorrow!!

They're cute

Really cute Ibis studs. I love bin chickens, they're so maligned but are clearly v smart.
Studs will be gifted and Imsure enjoyed.

Love them!

I love the ibis, they are really unfairly maligned birds. These studs are so cute and beautifully made like all the Binkabu earrings I have purchased so far.

These chickens are too good for bins

Love my cute Ibises. And they elicit many great comments. Comfy to wear and so very sweet!! I feel saddened that our wonderful Australian Ibises are so badly misaligned when they provide such an important role in reducing the detritus of humans. I am proud to wear my Binkabu Binny Chooks.

Beautiful Bin Birds

These are truly amazing. My daughter loves Ibis because it isn't their fault they are who they are. She feels for them. Also Bush Turkeys also. They are beautifully made and she is beyond stoked. Thank you so much.
