A posey of Makomako flower (Wineberry), Harakeke Spear (Flax leaf) and a tiny unfurling fern.
Makomako berries were used by early European settlers to make wine, but before their arrival, Maori were using the leaves medicinally on burns, infected wounds, sore eyes and rheumatism. In Spring, bursts of Makomako flowers cover the trees in tiny white blooms, which develop into tonal pinks and claret-red.
Sterling silver Makomako flowers, Harakeke spears and baby ferns hand painted with porcelain paint. Hanging from sterling silver ear hooks.
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.
