A distinctive heart shape leaf, Kawakawa, from the Maori word Kawa, meaning `bitter', has been used throughout Maori history as a tea for medicinal purposes. Kawakawa leaves are also traditionally worn after the loss of a loved one.
My Kawakawa leaf charm is the baby sister to my regular Kawakawa leaf (10mm height including hoop x 8mm). The tiny sterling silver leaf is hand painted on one side with porcelain paint in shimmering green.
Please choose from the options in the drop down menu to the right. You can choose a single necklace charm, a single ear charm, or double ear charms for a set. You can use them on my necklace charm holders (necklace charm, image 3), my ear charm hoops (ear charm), or on jewellery you already own! Please note the difference in necklace and ear charms (the attached loop at the top faces to the front for an ear charm. See last image).
Necklace charm holder and ear charm hoops sold separately.
The loop on the top of the charm is soldered shut. If you need an extra open sterling silver jump ring, please add a comment at checkout and I will include one for free!
Shipping for Charmed pieces is free when items in your cart total $130
Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
