Hiwa-i-te-rangi is one of the stars of Matariki, which 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 Hiwa, drawn within a taimana (diamond) which again is in reference to a star. The tukutuku patterns on the border of this frame are in lots of nine (matariki reference), we have included the actual constellation in her night hair and her moko kauae (chin) shows the connection between the stars and us here on the whenua (land).
Size: XLG approx 7cm
Earring material: Gold Mirror Perspex
Earring hooks: Gold Plated (Nickel Free) Hooks.
