Pīrori – iti pounamu hoop earrings

These hoops are just lovely little rings of gorgeousness.  And look at those neat lines. All style, these little hoops.   These would be a great set to have in your jewellery box for special nights out, or every day wear when you just want to feel beautiful.  They even look great on our 9 year old, they’d make a very special gift for your kotiro.

The name Pīrori means to twirl round and round, these earrings do just that.  Framing the face, they highlight the lines of the neck and jaw and bring attention to your smile.   The spinning movement also makes them very therapeutic to play with! Every girl needs a pair of hoop earrings.

Tim patiently shapes every hoop by hand, working slowly and gently to maintain an even curve of the hoop. It is meditative work and each hoop takes longer then you would imagine to create. So much of Tim’s wairua and aroha in each taonga.

The hoop is an earring classic that has been worn by a long line of stylish women over the ages. A versatile and timeless earring design.  Pounamu hoop earrings bring our very own Māori flavour into the multi-cultural mix and embrace cultural diversity in a way that is modern and fun.
