The Whenua Ring from Vaune Mason is so named because it was carved in memory of the rolling hills around where she grew up. Whenua is a Māori word that is rich with meaning - whenua is land, ground, territory or domain, as well as placenta or afterbirth. 

The rolling hills around Muriwai Beach in West Auckland where Vaune Mason spent her childhood were full of the creatures of her imagination. The sun curving around the hills in the morning as she rode the school bus to the local primary school made her dream of the land being like a blanket cradling the lakes and creeks where she swam, and possibly taniwha  who might live, deep under the waters.  

This ring is hand crafted in solid bronze.

This ring is made to order in different sizes.  Custom orders for this ring are usually available within 2-3 weeks (to allow time for your ring to be hand made).

Please give us your accurately measured ring size, we will be in touch to confirm the correct measurements and  turnaround time for your custom order.

Vaune Mason is based on the Kāpiti coast. Her detailed carved animals are reproduced in glowing bronze and silver, and every now and then, in recycled native timbers, stone or bone. Vaune also loves to make beautiful be-jewelled pieces that look worthy of a treasure hunters' hoard.
