Earrings - Amaru
Amaru means dignity, poise or dignified. Amaru was designed to capture the calm dignity we see in tāne and wāhine in quiet service to their community, their whānau.
The stone used in the design was chosen because it is said to absorb negative energy, promote calm, facilitate awareness and encourage emotional expression and communication.
Named after the ones we see who step forward to serve, to carry responsibilities on behalf of us all.
Calm dignity. Quiet service.
We are inspired by their determination, perseverance and strength of heart and vision.
Road trips with kaihana to walk on whenua, kaputī and visits with whanaunga on their farms - these are the moments that lead us to the feathers that adorn these and our other befeathered earrings.
