This pair of earrings comes with 9 stars representing the constellation Pleiades, or Matariki. If you prefer to have a constellation of your choice please add a note at checkout telling me which constellation you would like.
These lovely long rectangular star map earrings are a celebration of the starry night sky, and in honour of those courageous adventurers who journeyed far from home with only a Star Map to follow.
Made with recycled sterling silver and native New Zealand Rimu wood, each star is individually inlaid into the wood and polished to a smooth finish. These earrings each contain 9 individual silver stars representing the constellation Pleiades, or the celebration of Matariki (Maori New Year) in New Zealand. . Each pair of earrings is in a drop style and feature handmade silver earhooks.
Each earring measures approximately 1cm across, and 5cm long with a drop of approx 6cm in total.
If you would like stars that represent a different constellation, please let me know and we can discuss how this might look.
No matter your ethnicity, all of our ancestors followed the stars to find new lands and opportunities, and they followed the stars to find their way home again. Who hasn’t looked up to the stars and wondered what they mean, who else might be out there, and how they got there in the first place?
