Aotearoa Adornment

Auckland artist George Nuku’s mother-of-pearl pendants draw inspiration from his Maori cultural heritage and feature on the cover of June’s American Vogue. “Pile on multiple pendants for a modern, urban edge”, Elle’s ‘make it your own’ special on tribal jewellery tells fashionistas. Nuku is also featured in 1 Giant Leap bemoaning that Maori kids in Aotearoa often know more about Michael Jordon than their own culture. Just own it.
