Words from the craftswoman

This gorgeous unisex ring is handmade from recycled Sterling Silver and features hand-drawn Maori kowhaiwhai patterns which are then etched into the metal. Each design drawn is different to the others and is intended to represent the vast diversity of, and connection between, souls and spirits in this world and in others. The spirals, dots, lines and swirls tell the story of our shared history, our values and our family. Kowhaiwhai, these are the beautiful repeating patterns of traditional Maori design. They differ from iwi to iwi, tribe to tribe and they tell the story of the history of the people; where they came from, where they are going, their legends, Gods and the connections and relationships that link us all together – the connections that make a family!

About this collection: The Guardian I am the caregiver, the one who supports and gently guides you on your journey. My heart seeks to comfort you in your times of distress, to in some way soften the pathway but at the same time honour the difficulties of the journey that we are all on. My hands will wipe your furrowed brow and offer you the nourishment of knowing we are here, together. I look to my ancestors for their guidance, to the wisdom of my culture and the sacred, ancient knowledge from which we are all borne. Understanding that our here and now is built upon the shoulders of those who carved the pathway before us, and that we too, offer up our wisdom to those we have yet to meet. I am the keeper of this wisdom, this service and this deep knowing that we are all stepping out into the same universal journey. It is my responsibility to share this knowledge with you. I am the Guardian
