Tupuānuku

This collection is based on the star Tupuānuku, one of the stars in the Matariki Constellation, she is connected to food grown in the ground, all cultivated and uncultivated food products. If she is shining bright when Matariki rises it is said the kai from the ground will be plentiful for that coming year.

We have used Tupuānuku to inspire this collection with different aspects in connection with her.  Such as the earthy colours of hua whenua (food from the earth), fabric to symbolise a waikawa (a basket used to gather and store hua whenua) and the raranga (weaving) pattern rau kumara (leaves of the kumara plant), which is said to be a pattern one would weave for someone who nurtures, feeds and cares for people.

The pattern on these earrings is the rau kumara pattern.

Ahua pai, the hoop was a little bent out of shape but overall nice and light and a little bit different.
