About this collection
In Māori mythology the Gods spoke through the birds, relaying their wishes and using their forms to influence the human realm. They were the vehicles used to speak with the Heavens and their feathers magic tokens of devotion that would bring loved ones back to you. My Karearea, Miromiro and Fan Tail designs pay tribute to these Messenger Stories.
The Karearea (Kārearea) has traditionally been a symbol of boldness and assertiveness and its cry was seen to foretell the weather.
The Miromiro or Kōmiromiro is also known as the New Zealand Tomtit was seen as a bearer of good news. People believed they had special powers which made them a very sacred & Tapu bird.
The Fantail or Piwakawaka (Pīwakawaka) was great Maui’s (Māui) companion, brave and daring in the face of war. He is our companion through the forest, never far from our side. The pīwakawaka dances cheekily, fluttering around, laughter in motion.
Wear the distinctive Kārearea on your wrist with our Karearea Wing Bracelet or the flirtatious Fantail around your neck with our Fan Tail Pendant. Our Duo Miromiro Earrings hang beautifully from the ear, two Miromiro feathers hang, slightly overlapped one over the other. Whichever message speaks and connects to you the most, you can find a beautiful piece to wear everyday to symbolise this from our Messenger Stories or Mini Messenger Collections.
