Waste not, want not. Back in 2011 my home town was torn apart by a massive earthquake (and more than 12,000 aftershocks over the next 3 years). As a result, over 5000 residential homes have been demolished and entire suburbs relocated.

This lovely simple rounded bracelet is made from native New Zealand rimu timber recovered from some of these poor homes. These are created from flooring and wood panels and each one has its own story to tell. You can expect to find nail holes, maybe some putty, a few bumps and lumps. No two bracelets can ever be the same.

The wooden bracelets are surprisingly light and sit comfortably on your arm. You can select from 3 different sizes:
60cm inside diameter
65cm inside diameter
70cm inside diameter

The Maori people of New Zealand believe that we have a direct link to all things in our environment - so much so that our ancestors may be seen in the trees, the ocean and the mountains every single day. Taking this beautiful belief forward, I believe that each one of these bracelets carry an essence of the families who lived in the houses they came from - the Christmas mornings, the new babies, the sadness of losing loved ones - life itself.

They are each a special and magical piece of a city and a people that are forever changed.
