All items are shipped through Australia Post. We do not take any responsibility for your parcel once it has left our hands, and therefore cannot take responsibility for items lost by Australia Post.

We ship to the address listed by you when you place your order. If items are returned to us due to an incorrect address or non-collection, we will contact you for an updated address to resend it to you.

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.
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, 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). To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging, and we will require proof of purchase. We will require photos of the damage and the packaging to confirm return eligibility. The cost of the return postage is your responsibility.
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. If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can't guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
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, where you will have to send it back to us and we will post it back once fixed. Unfortunately we don't cover shipping for this service.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LOBE BIRDS
- 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
- Keeping your earrings in their 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
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR REAL BIRDS
Love them lots.
If you ACTUALLY have questions on bird care, I'd love to chat but you should also consult your avian vet! I'm not a trained animal professional! Just a professional crazy bird lady.

Kākāpō Stud Earrings
The kākāpō is a critically-endangered, forest-dwelling parrot endemic to New Zealand. They are incredibly unique and a treasured native, with ongoing conservation efforts helping to bring back the population from the edge of extinction. We've used two different green acrylics and lots of hand-painted etching to bring this design to life. We took our time to capture their big, fluffy bodies and cute faces in a design that is still distinctly BINKABU! These studs might be statement but they are light and easy to wear all day long 😊
The history of the kākāpō is a story of drama, despair and hope. Before humans arrived, kākāpō were abundant throughout New Zealand. Population numbers dropped swiftly due to hunting, introduced predators and land clearance. Conservation efforts began in 1894, but by the mid-1900s, kākāpō teetered on the edge of extinction. There are roughly only 200 kākāpō alive today.
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.
Packaging that really tells a story—Learn more about these beautiful birds with our bespoke earring cards, carefully researched and designed by us for every single bird in our flock.
A portion of the profits from earrings sold in our New Zealand collection will be donated to the Kākāpō Recovery Programme.🌻 W: 1.8cm L: 3cm
