Matakahi Koura – Golden Marsden Flower Jade Earrings
He iti te matakahi, pakaru rikiriki te tōtara
A wedge may be small but it can break up the tōtara into fragments.
As this whakatauki so aptly describes, although small a wedge can make big changes. Similarly, we can all be like that. A small act of kindness, a gentle word spoken, a little forgiveness. We can be the wedge that makes big changes for the better in the lives and the world around us. These unique pounamu earrings were carved to be beautiful reminders of the power we hold as individuals to be a wedge of change for the better.
Tim has rounded the front edge of these Matakahi whakakai, giving them a lovely gentle form. In golden Marsden Flower Jade, these earrings have a beautiful glow about them.
Hung from rolled gold hooks these pounamu earrings are quite mesmerising as they swing and move in your ear. They add a pop of unique style to any outfit. Have a look through the photos to see a similar pair modelled by our gorgeous niece, Hanni.
