Sonia Therese

Sandcast Open Circle Earrings


1 piece in stock.

Handmade by Ōtautahi based Ngāi Tahu jeweller Sonia Therese.

Cast in sustainable New Zealand beach sand, these beautiful, organic circle earrings are made from 100% recycled sterling silver.

These earrings are shaped in an open circle that measures approximately 15mm in diameter and is 3mm in width. Each pair of earrings have their own unique texture reflecting the sand within which they are created.

These earrings have been designed to connect you to a place, offer you a sense of belonging and remind you of all those who have come before you. The process of casting in sand is intended to connect you to places where you feel especially empowered, inspired and called home to.

These earrings have sterling silver hooks.

Artist statement:

I wholeheartedly believe in the power and the beauty of making things by hand!
In a world where everything feels like it is spiralling out of control, speeding by at a breakneck pace, choosing handmade is a very potent statement of intent.
Handmade means we value a slower pace. We believe that things are done with authenticity, love and care. We honour the history and the story of the maker and the item being made. We value something much more fundamental to our wellbeing than money
Handmade is a lifestyle, a way to connect with a wisdom that is far greater than us!

What I have come to understand, and what is now joyfully reflected in my jewellery designs, is that there is no such thing as perfection. In fact, the truth is that we are all perfectly imperfect and that we are beautiful because of this.
And by celebrating the beauty of this imperfection I celebrate the beauty of the world. The more we see beauty, the more we believe that things ARE beautiful. So the more we believe in beauty, the more we see – beauty in the world, beauty in imperfection, beauty in each other AND beauty in ourselves. Wow, that’s a world I want to live in!!!
