Miss Maia Whetū earrings - grey gold
These stunning earrings are by jewellery designer "Miss Maia" AKA Tracey Gardner.
This design gives reverence to the stars that adorn the body of Ranginui (Sky-father). The Whetū design is a visual reference of the influence and luminosity of stars in the night sky, and how we give faith to our stars to support meaning for our present and future plans and experiences.
The surface of the design is hand-painted into the designed etching. Super lightweight, petite in size, complemented by ear hoops to provide a subtle yet striking addition to your accessory kete.
Surgical steel 20mm ear hoop.
Dimensions 25mm (w) x 25mm (h) (excluding ear hoop)
"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
