    Description

     

    Waste not, want not. Back in 2011 my home town was torn apart by a massive earthquake (and more than 12,000 aftershocks over the next 3 years). As a result, over 5000 residential homes have been demolished and entire suburbs relocated.

    This stunning asymmetric bracelet is made from native New Zealand Rimu timber recovered from some of these poor homes. These are created from skirting boards and each one has its own story to tell. You can expect to find nail holes, maybe some putty, a few bumps and lumps. No two bracelets can ever be the same.

    The Maori people of New Zealand believe that we have a direct link to all things in our environment – so much so that our ancestors may be seen in the trees, the ocean and the mountains every single day. Taking this beautiful belief forward, I believe that each one of these bracelets carry an essence of the families who lived in the houses they came from – the Christmas mornings, the new babies, the sadness of losing loved ones – life itself.  They are each a special and magical piece of a city and a people that are forever changed.

    Rimu, or red pine, is a gorgeous honey coloured Native timber from the temperate sub-alpine forests of New Zealand. It is prized for its strength, beauty and versatility and long considered one of the finest timbers in New Zealand. It is a towering tree, reaching over 50 metres at maturity, and a member of a family of ancient podocarps – with a lineage going back millions of years.

    These bangles are strong, durable pieces of art to adorn your arm or that of your loved one.  They make ideal environmentally sustainable gifts, and wood is also the material of a 5th Wedding Anniversary.  Each time you wear a Tiki Kiwi product you are reminded that every action you take, no matter how small, has an impact on the health of Planet Earth – and you are a mindful, thoughtful consumer adding value.
