We are currently refreshing our website with a planned updated site for ITI ready around late August -Septwmber .
Multi-talented (whanaunga o Ngati Manaipoto / Ngati Porou) Shane Te Ruki was commissioned by NZ Mint to create these pieces are collectable and beautiful works of art with limited pieces remaining. Shane describes his Puna jewellery range as “Gems from beneath the surface”.
The Puna range is a collection of silver earrings, cufflinks, bracelets and pendant designs embodying traditional Māori themes in a contemporary form. The range creatively mixes koru, tukutuku and kōwhaiwhai designs. Each piece is manufactured in silver accompanied by a story which reflects the purpose and explanation behind each design.
