Whakaniko Matakahi ngā rua – Unique pounamu 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 deliberately left the outer edge raw so you can see, touch and enjoy the outer rind of the pounamu.  And remember that there is beauty in everything. Furthermore, the stunning swirls of colour uncovered in this stone testify to this beauty.  When you put these earrings together you can see a myriad of worlds within; mountains in the clouds, birds flying over the sand dunes, a sunny river valley. They are just incredible!

Hung from sterling silver hoops these pounamu earrings are quite mesmerising as they swing and move in your ear.  They add a pop of unique style to any outfit.  Flick through the photos to see our model wearing a pair in the same style, made from a different part of the same stone.
