These handmade piupiu necklaces are just stunning!! Made locally from bamboo, which is a wonderful year round renewable resource, which isnt subject to the same tikanga as harakeke (which should only be harvested at particular times of the year).
These necklaces are hardy and durable, but avoid getting wet, and chemical exposure eg hairspray and perfume.
Each strand is approximately 30 to 80mm long, they move beautifully and are so elegant on. No two necklaces are alike so please allow for and enjoy a little artistic difference!
These are handmade in Hawkes Bay by textile designer Lee Olsen, and come presented on one of her AWE DESIGN backing cards.
There are 2 versions - one with hypoallergenic brass ball chain, and one with hypoallergenic antique silver plated ball chain.
