Kāpehu Whetu - Star compass necklace
- Gold - 925 Sterling Silver 18k Gold Plated
- Silver - Rhodium Plated
This simple and delicate piece is inspired by Te Kāpehu Whetū - Star compass. A guide used by our voyaging ancestors to navigate our waka in the right direction by way of the rise and setting of the sun, the moon and the stars including Matariki.
I’m sure during those journeys our tīpuna would have encountered dark nights & treacherous seas and similarly sometimes in life we too, will experience dark times and uneasy waters.
For me this piece is a reminder of the ability and the tools that we have to steer and navigate our waka in the right direction and a gentle reminder that our tīpuna are always near.
