Whanau Pin - Rima
This light and wearable pin is hand pierced from plate sterling silver, oxidised and lightly rubbed back to achieve a 'starry night' texture and colour. Each pin is unique and a one-off and each reflects the rising of the Matariki star cluster (the Pleiades or Seven Sisters) from over the horizon.
Matariki festivities in New Zealand highlight the Tangata Whenua indigenous view of the world. They remind us of the cycle of life and natural ways of marking the passing of time and new beginnings.
