These beautiful hand-woven whetū (stars) in sterling silver and copper are made by Keri-Mei Zagrobelna - Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and Te Āti Awa. The hand woven process that Keri-Mei uses to make this delicate piece is labour intensive so each star created is unique.

 These beautiful hand-woven whetū (stars) in sterling silver and copper are made by Keri-Mei Zagrobelna - Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and Te Āti Awa. The hand woven process that Keri-Mei uses to make this delicate piece is labour intensive so each star created is unique.

Keri-Mei comes from a background entwined in museums and art, worlds in which both her grandmother and mother worked. She practices art in memory of these wonderful wāhine (women) and to acknowledge her tīpuna (ancestors). The aesthetic of Keri-Mei's work represents the connectedness to her immediate environment and upbringing. It speaks of cultural communication and interpersonal relationships, "I use jewellery as my language and speak through my hands. My eyes hear my thoughts and translate. Jewellery making is a medium by which I can communicate my heritage to both local and global audiences. I seek to nurture and encourage others through my work, by way of my actions and choices as an artist".

Keri-Mei has previously exhibited at Pataka Gallery Museum of Arts and Cultures and The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. She has also co-presented at the International JEMposium and represented New Zealand at the World Art Games in Slovakia 2015. Keri-Mei was also part of the New Zealand delegation that attended the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts, Guam in May, 2016.
