DIMENSIONS AND DESCRIPTIONS
These stunning one-of-a-kind earrings are lightweight, stylish and simply beautiful. They are each hand-cut into the shape of an asymmetric triangle, or toki. The earrings feature hand-made fine-silver earhooks and each one measures approximately 5cm long and 2.5cm deep, hanging roughly 6cm from the earlobe.
Your earrings come in a range of vibrant colors including a unique multi-color option. With the multi-color option please indicate the colors you prefer and I will do my best to include at least some of these in your piece.
Please Note: because these resin pieces are hand made and the materials are recycled from other processes I CANNOT reproduce exactly the pieces in the photographs. Your jewelry will be gorgeous, in the color that you select and will include some wood pieces. However please purchase ONLY if you appreciate the artistry of hand-made and are a fan of one-of-a-kind art. Thank you for your understanding xx
MEANING AND SYMBOLISM
In the symbolism of the Maori people of Aotearoa, New Zealand, the toki, or triangle is a very powerful shape. It represents strength, courage and leadership. The toki is symbolic of the axe, which axe was traditionally used to fight, to show status and to present power, but now is given as a symbol of strength in the face of adversity and bravery.
The Rimu wood used in this piece is a by-product of my other product manufacturing and is sourced from homes demolished following the 2010-2011 Christchurch Earthquakes. New Zealand Rimu is a beautiful red and honey coloured wood, long prized as the superior building material in this part of the world.
The Rimu chips are embedded into Super-Sap bio-resin; an eco-friendly material with a certified 40% Bio-based content. This bio-resin is produced to help you reduce your carbon footprint.
