Ancient Land Earrings #1 - Long

Size: 72mm x 15mm - one pair of earrings only

Hand made in Sterling Silver - the gemstones are  pink and gold tourmalines

Inspiration: Koru, Ancient

As a jewellery artist I use the koru design a lot in my work representing new beginnings and inspired by the unfurling of the new growth of a fern frond. 

The “Ancient land” series eventuated after visiting the limestone cliffs at Takiroa in North Otago. I was amazed at the beautiful lace like textures nature had created within the limestone and I felt very privileged to view the remaining protected Maori rock art drawings that remain there. In this silent, otherworldly landscape I imagined myself back in time, the pictures drawn on rock became language and from these beginnings a culture began to form and grow.
