HANDMADE JEWELRY

MAKING TREASURES THAT ARE AS UNIQUE AS YOU ARE

YOUR OWN STORY

One of the most important aspects of making jewelry, for me anyway, is that each piece is it’s own unique piece of art. I have learned that my true passion is to make treasures that celebrate the individual beauty of the process AND reflect the authenticity of the person wearing them.

This is why I am SO PASSIONATE about handmade jewellery!

Every piece is made by hand, has it’s own individual qualities and reflects a one-of-a-kind spirit – which ironically, is the same spirit that binds us all together!

Pausing to see the beautiful imperfection of the world, in all it’s glory, is a gift.

Beautiful Handmade Jewellery
Pausing to see the beautiful imperfection of the world, in all it’s glory, is a gift. Seeing that same imperfection in one-another allows us to value diversity, unique experiences and feel connected. Being present to that same one-of-a-kind beauty that WE bring to the world. When we believe in the beauty of ourselves, appreciating our ‘faults’ as unique gifts, then the entire world begins to change – OUR world changes.

This is what drives me, why I make jewellery and defines how I present myself in the world. I am Sonia and I am incredibly grateful to be connected with you.

Product Details
Collection: Tūrangawaewae My Place
Style: Earrings
Materials: Silver, 9ct Yellow Gold, 9ct Rose Gold, 9ct White Gold
Methods: Sandcasting, Stamped Words, Laser Etching
Form: Porowhita Circle

Cast individually in sustainable New Zealand beach or river sand, these beautiful, organic circle earrings are made from recycled sterling silver or 9ct Alluvial Gold from New Zealand. Each earring has it’s own unique texture reflecting the sand within which it is created. Your porowhita closed circle earrings measure approximately 15mm in diameter and are approx 2mm in width. You also have the option of having a GPS location laser etched onto the reverse, or the word Aroha (other wording may be available) for a small additional fee. You can select from handmade earhooks or stud finishing for your earrings.

The circle shape, or Porowhita in Te Reo Māori, represents the understanding that the Universe has no beginning and no ending, and symbolises the cycle of life and our eternal remembering and forgetting – a journey of endless discovery!

These earrings feature a beautiful sandcast texture which has been designed to connect you to a place, offer you a sense of belonging and remind you of all those who have come before you. Inspired by the Māori concept of tūrangawaewae, often translated as ‘a place to stand’. Tūrangawaewae are places where we feel especially empowered and connected.
