Miss Maia Tōrua earrings
These stunning earrings are by jewellery designer "Miss Maia" AKA Tracey Gardner.
This design represents a moment of divergence, a change in direction just like a stream coming away from the main river. To grow and innovate we must forge new paths.
The gold chains connect the earrings to hand-made hooks while forming taimana (diamond shape) in the negative space to complement the silhouette of the main acrylic piece.
Gold earring hooks hand-made for MISS MAIA earrings.
Dimensions 56mm (w) x 80mm (h) (excluding earring hook)
"MISS MAIA promises adornments that are always unique, where I've owned, directed and immersed myself in the process end-to-end. I'm personally passionate about my creations - they are pieces of me. By supporting this little business you are supporting a wahine, daughter, sister, māmā, partner and Ngāti Tūwharetoa ki Kawerau creative. After eight and a half years in Melbourne our family have now returned to NZ, bringing MISS MAIA back home where we are currently based on the beautiful whenua of Ngāti Awa"
These earrings are designed by a NZ Māori jeweller
