Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades. It rises in mid-winter and for many Māori, it heralds the start of a new year.
The kōrero (story) behind this earring design: The image of the wāhine (woman) is our interpretation of Tupuānuku, drawn with the raranga (weaving) pattern Rau Kumara (leaves of the kumara plant) in the background. Her moko kauae (chin) shows the connection between the stars and us here on the whenua (land).
