Drawing inspiration from my Maori / Cook Island heritage , Manawahine is jewellery made to highlight the strength and beauty of all women.
The combination of Paua shell and Harakeke (tenax phormium, bamboo fibre or hemp fibre, is uniquely crafted and very easy to wear.
Every shell piece is unique, each pair is slightly mismatched in shape (which I love) but somehow the shimmering blue/ green light always brings them together. I weave the strong fibres of either Harakeke (flax), bamboo or hemp fibre to bind and fit all jewellery with sterling silver hooks to finish.
The paua shell reflects a spectrum of colours including hues of pink, purple, blue, green and yellow. Matched with the soft green tones of the dried harakeke, bamboo or hemp these earrings will match any outfit day or night.
Matches beautifully with the Manawahine Neck Pendant.
Postage and packaging included.
