Called Equal Earrings, the trio from Wanaka (Eve Paddon, Toto Tanabe and Jaymie Tervoort) were inspired by the 1970s feminist movements, and have a range of different colours, shapes and sizes for every outfit.

Already they have sold about 20 pairs at a gift shop next to Edgewater Resort in Wanaka, and several more off their website equal-earrings.mystorbie.com and Instagram, with 10% of their profits going to ‘Gender Equal NZ.’

Making their product out of a variety of different coloured clays (all 70s inspired), their earrings are aimed at supporting gender equality as a whole.
