These gorgeous earrings are made from Hawaiian kapa created through traditional processes with 100% natural dyes and inks. Made with wauke grown on Haleakalā, these earrings carry both the 'āina (land) and the 'ike (knowledge) of Hawai'i in them.
In collaboration with Hina Kneubuhl we are continuing our goal to support artist/makers across the Moana to share their beautiful traditional artworks and ways of making. This is our third collaboration in this series, and our first for 2022.
The earrings are approximately 7cm in length. All findings are hypoallergenic. The resin is cast in our Auckland studio to showcase the designs and patterns as selected by Koloa Jewellery. Each piece is unique and handmade; any flaws are indicative of the nature of handmade pieces and add to the specialness of each koloa.
