I had a lovely friend from South Africa, who has moved to New Zealand contact me recently to make her a completely custom bracelet. She wanted something with the Maori art symbol of the Koru to be incorporated into the bracelet to represent her new home. She also wanted her own name because as she says it "people often get my name wrong and I want to show it to them so they get it!"
I had a look at the beautiful koru symbols in Maori art. I found out that it is a very important symbol in Māori art, carving and tattooing. It is based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. As many of my customers will know I love when plants and flowers have hidden meanings and so the Koru was definitely something that I was more than happy to incorporate into a design.
I was very happy with the final piece, I hope Nanie is too!
