Tapatoru Pounamu Earrings

There is something perfect about a tapatoru(triangle). Amongst other things, tapatoru can represent the niho taniwha(teeth of the taniwha) and maunga.

Tapatoru are used extensively in Māori weaving from tukutuku and tāniko to kete and korowai and as such has become a prominent symbol of te ao Māori.

These Tapatoru earrings are just beautiful.  And those black streaks amongst the creamy green. Gorgeous.

Modern and funky, whilst keeping that connection to the whenua and whakapapa through the pounamu.  You will stand strong and proud with these whakakai in your taringa.
