kate5kiwis: aotearoa bracelet


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

aotearoa bracelet

over the weekend, for my cousin, i've refashioned a pearl necklace of our auntie's and arranged the pearls like the *long white cloud* of aotearoa new zealand.
the two other strands symbolise the atlantic and pacific oceans which surround the country of our birth. this bracelet is travelling half way around the world to you, bringing sunshine and all our love X
