Hiwa-i-te-rangi Sterling Silver Earrings
Ethical, Handcrafted Earrings
To celebrate this new beginning we are welcoming this Matariki by lovingly honouring one of the stars of Matariki. For this year we have chosen Hiwa-i-te-rangi, which is a star Maori would cast their wishes too each year.
Made with real New Zealand feathers which have been ethically & locally sourced these feathers have been hand-cut & crafted by maori women to create this beautiful piece on a sterling silver hook. The Moonstones which have been added on sterling silver chain have been used as a representation of the moon phases maori would follow, but it is also known as a stone for wishing.
Make your wish this Matariki with our Hiwa-i-te-rangi earrings.

Please Note: - As these are real feathers & moonstone, sizes and shapes may vary between sets. We will strive to make each as symmetrical as possible .
Caring For Your feathers:
- Do not get your feathers wet as they are real this will change the shape of your feathers and they won't last as long.
- When cleaning we recommend you only clean the hook, chain & moonstone with a damp cloth. Do not clean the feather.
