Fotia Collection by Cora-Allan Wickliffe - Signet Ring

The collection is inspired by my grandmother Fotia Lafaiki and has been created for people to wear Hiapo patterns in a contemporary way.

The signet rings are genderless making them an option for everyone to wear. The first release has 5 designs that represent the native flora and fauna from Niue.

Taro

Grown as a staple for many families, the taro crops grow in abundance and line many of the roads as you drive over the middle of the island. In Niue there is a special dish called Takihi which combines Taro with Pawpaw and coconut cream, I wait ever Christmas for it.

 

This ring is Sterling silver and produced 100% in Tamaki Makaurau.
