The Heritage Collection - Manawanui | Old Bones
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 Heritage Collection comes in different ranges.
The Manawanui range celebrates the stepping forward of the people.
It is determination, perseverance and strength of heart and vision.
The 'Old Bones' design was inspired by the idea of those attributes having their origin in ancestral dreams and deeds, seeding in our bones. The brass badge is antiqued and stamped with "tonu" to reflect this continuance, the passing down and lifting up.
These are handmade earrings which vary from pair to pair. They are as unique as the beautiful people who wear them but they are all made with aroha.
Core components are -
- Ribbon/fabric, hand stamped brass, bone, locally gathered feathers
