New Zealand Wairere (Waterfall) Silver Earrings, made from Stainless Steel, measuring approximately 6cm in length and 2cm in width, I also use hypoallergenic findings for sensitive ears. Inspired by the North Island falls which are rich in Māori tradition, and there are many stories about their origins. The lower part of the Āniwaniwa Falls, near Lake Waikaremoana, is called Te Tangi-o-Hinerau. This refers to the story of Hinerau, a beautiful Tūhoe woman, who was trapped by a violent earthquake. In her grief she began to cry (tangi), and her tears falling over the rocks of a nearby chasm formed the waterfall.
