Stunning statement earrings designed in NZ by Tania Tupu.
One of our most loved NZ earrings designers, Tania creates these incredible designs right here in her Wellington studio. The drop earrings feature Kārearea and a subtle nod to traditional weaving, a regular feature of Tania's works.
The Kārearea is a powerful visionary bird representing fearlessness, wisdom, and kaitiakitanga while the Aronui pattern featured on the tail references the pursuit of knowledge around the natural world. Unfortunately the Kārearea is one of our most threatened birds of prey, with potentially as few as 5,000 left, they're rarer even than the various species of kiwi.
The earrings measure 30 x 30mm, with the design sitting proud of the diamond shape, creating a 3D effect. The hooks are sterling silver.
