Earrings - Māmā III - Red Solid

This collection is based on the star Tupuārangi (male), one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation. Tupuārangi is similar to Tupuānuku (the star of all cultivated and uncultivated food products) in terms of its connection to food and growth; however, in this instance he is associated with food that comes from the sky. Tupuārangi is linked to nga manu (birds). 

  • These earrings measure 50mm x 70mm.
  • Perspex.
  • Silver plated (NF) hooks.
  • It is recommended that you care and gently handle your items, treat them like the taonga (treasure) they are. When cleaning, use a damp cloth and let air dry.

Nichola Te Kiri

Friends of Māori artist and designer Nichola Te Kiri began to notice a growing collection of inspired contemporary jewellery gathering dust in her cabin studio. In November 2011 they took action and created a Facebook group as an avenue to promote and sell the taonga (treasures) Nichola was developing. Word got out: interest grew and demand for pieces increased. Continuing to create and produce beautiful collections - all of Nicholas' pieces are totally handcrafted and made at home, and each design honours Aotearoa’s heritage and soul, with a contemporary Maori design twist.
