The Koakoa Design : Heritage Collection earrings are inspired by the people and places we connect with.  Indigenous, Māori design aesthetics flow through all of the unique, statement earrings in this collection.

The Manawanui range celebrates the stepping forward of the people.

It is determination, perseverance and strength of heart and vision.

 

Āke Ake Ake captures that conviction and spirit.


The Heritage Collection is designed to be cohesive across the releases.  Due to this feature, these earrings are available as a SINGLE earring, a PAIR or a TRIO.

 

These are handmade earrings which vary from set to set.  They are as unique as the beautiful people who wear them and they are all made with aroha.
