Flowering most heavily over Winter, and fruiting in Summer, Puriri trees are evergreen, and a favourite of the Puriri moth, who makes the tree its home by tunneling into the wood. Boiled Puriri leaves were used by Maori to bathe sprains and muscle aches. The flowers range from bright pink, to dark red, to pale rose pink, to white.
Sterling silver tubular flower (18mm x 10mm), hand painted with porcelain paint in an ombre of dark to lighter pinks. Tiny detailed leaves adorn the reverse of the flower. Suspended from a 45cm sterling silver chain, with a 5cm extender.
Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
