Great Travels - Pounamu Earrings

95.00

These earrings are named Great Travels. I got given this piece of Pounamu over 25 years ago when I was a resident Artist at the Northland Craft Trust. From memory it was given to me by a local kaumātua however it was a long time ago and I cannot remember the exact persons name. It has travelled with me though 14 different house shifts over these years and somehow it has always remained with me.  

It is a very high-quality piece of Pounamu and although the stone itself is hard. There is a softness that this set of earrings emanate. This is not easy to describe, however it is a lovely quality of this stone. 

I have used very high-quality fittings of 925 Silver. As such the value of these earrings will increase over time. Sterling silver items contain a minimum of 92.5% pure silver. Sterling silver will last for a long time if cared for properly, whereas silver-plating will wear off and generally does not last.

This set is from the first batch of Pounamu earrings that I have created. I think that this potentially makes them even more special. (Especially if I become famous one day or perhaps once I am dead).

Each set of earrings is handcrafted and is unique. As these are handcrafted there will be small variations between each piece and this adds to their magic. Also, the difference in each piece of stone makes these incredibly individualised.

Each pair has been registered in my Database and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and I guarantee my craftsmanship. If there are any problems let me know ASAP and I’ll put it right. 

I wish you and your family the deepest peace and happiness. 
Aroha nui.
