Whakaniko Matakahi ngā toru – 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. You can see a myriad of worlds within the patterns of the stone.  Pictures created in the depths of Papatūānuku.

Hung from sterling silver hooks these pounamu earrings are quite mesmerising.  They add a pop of unique style to any outfit.  If you flick through teh photos you can see a similar pair modelled by our neice.
