Cinder-Elle, you *shall* be the belle...
My gorgeous friend Elle (say, "Ellie") is getting married next month.
She has designed her wedding dress with a koru on the skirt...
The koru shape is a scroll shape and is linked to the New Zealand fern plant. The shoot of the fern has a curled-over tip which unfurls and becomes a fernleaf.
The koru represents the unfolding of new life, that everything is reborn and continues. It represents renewal and hope for the future.In July, Elle saw these: designed by a Titirangi jeweller, and got all inspired. Very kiwi, very funky, love it. So she asked me if I'd have a go at creating/recreating some wedding jewellery for herself and three bridesmaids.
I finally found my muse.
Elle's necklace, and heart-shaped earrings, modelled by the beautiful R13.
Necklaces for the maids.
Their earrings are tear-shaped paua, like the flower petals.
I hope she likes them. I do.
