Words from the craftswoman

Feel the power of the mighty Phoenix with these stunning one-of-a-kind earrings that are lightweight, stylish and simply beautiful. They are each hand-cut into the shape of a circle, or Porowhita - a symbol that can be found in indigenous cultures worldwide. It is a powerful shape representing the circle of life, a universal approach and belief that life is never-ending. The earrings feature hand-made fine-silver earhooks or silver post/scroll finishing. Each earring is made from an environmentally friendly bio-resin - a product that utilises up to 40% recycled and waste plant material. Pieces of recycled wood, sourced from home demolished following the 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, are embedded in the resin. Earrings are available in a range of semi-translucent colors. About this collection: The Phoenix The Phoenix rises from the ashes of its destruction and brings forth great wisdom, resilience and powers unseen before. I am forever changed by the trials that I experience and these offer me a beautiful balance between creation and destruction, life and death, growth and stability. I understand that when I am cast into the fires of my life, a little piece of me dies. I am forever transformed and I am offered a choice. I choose to rise up from the ashes of my destruction and bring the wisdom I have with me for the benefit of others. I embrace the challenges that I face. I choose to let go of what I was to fully envelop and accept who I am becoming. I am the Phoenix (This collection embraces the power of the phoenix with pieces that are made from the destruction of the 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, an event that changed me forever and cast me upon the path-wway that would eventually bring me before you as a jewelry designer today)
