I've been fascinated by the Maori people ever since I watched the movie "Whale Rider" in 2002.Yesterday, my son was watching Gordon Ramsey show "Uncharted" when he went to the New Zealand wilderness and cooked Maori style. I'm pretty sure that's what inspired these earrings.Although the vintage black and white lucite beads most likely don't have a design from that culture, it reminded me of some of the tattoos they have. I decided to do somewhat of a rustic design. And the little vintage black bead drop? It reminded me of how they wrapped the food they were cooking in puka leaves instead of tin foil😜. These are very light!!
