Piupiu earrings - Whero/Dark Red
How GORGEOUS and ĀTAAHUA are these handmade piupiu earrings!! Made locally from bamboo, which is a wonderful year round renewable resource, which isnt subject to the same tikanga as harakeke (which shouldn't be harvested at particular times).
These earrings are hardy and durable, but avoid getting wet or chemical exposure eg hairspray and perfume.
Approximately 50mm long, they move beautifully and are so elegant on. No two pairs are alike so please allow for and enjoy a little artistic difference between each pair! Note that the red colour is usually a dark red...occasionally they are a brighter colour, but usually most of them are a deep dark brick red.
These are handmade in Hawkes Bay by textile designer Lee Olsen, and come presented on one of her AWE DESIGN backing cards.
