Matakahi – pounamu wedge 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 earrings were carved to be beautiful reminders of the power we hold as individuals to be a wedge of change for the better.

Hung from our 14k rolled gold hoops these green pounamu earrings are quite mesmerising as they swing and move in your ear.  You can see in the photos how they glow with a little light behind them.
