Wahine Necklace

Wahine Summer Necklace by Tania Tupu

Wahine Summer - all-time favorite and key member of Tania's collection.  She makes her presence felt like the rising of Matariki every year. 

  • Samoan Siapo (tapa Cloth) flower motif designed after Tania was given a flower from the Rev Folasa Tupu Samoa on arrival to Falelima the village on the southwest corner of  Savai'i in Samoa- home to the Tupu whanau. 
  • The wahine bead was originally cast in the summer of 2009.
  • Matariki Star Cluster design pays homage to Matariki and her daughters that travel across our sky to signal the beginning of Maori new year.
  • The powerful combo of Pantone duck blue and lime with soft yellow resin undertones. 
  • Handcrafted 3-dimensional designer beads woven together with double-sided silk ribbon and finished with an adjustable toggle.
