“I've worn my Lovebirds Pendant everyday for the last 10 years since my husband bought it as my honeymoon gift when we visited NZ. On our 10th anniversary trip I visited the Boh Runga Jewellery Bohtique in Auckland and bought the Fantail Earrings and some other new treasures! My favourite jewellery!”
“This was definitely a purchase by me, for me! I like to think I’ve worked pretty hard this year and felt I needed a reward. I love lockets - they have a bit of weight to them, both physically and metaphorically. I have a silver locket which I’ve had for over 30 years and felt it was time to up my game, and add a gold sister. I haven’t yet added my special keepsake, but will probably be another photo of my kids. I have a few of your pieces now, and they are special purchases that always have a meaning and a memory.”
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.
