Matakahi in Kahurangi pounamu

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.

Furthermore, Tim deliberately left the outer edge raw so you can see, touch and enjoy the outer rind of the pounamu.

These Matakahi earrings are slim and delicate but strong and beautiful.  A lovely little gift to just let someone know you love them, you see them, you know how important they are.
