“This kira is the first one I ever bought. A piece like this could take a year to make. My earrings and necklace were made by my mother — she likes recreating jewelry. The coral stones are traditional; you’ll find almost everyone owning a piece. Dzi — the cat eye, is rare and expensive. It is difficult to find original dzi pieces and the ones I’m wearing have been collected and passed on from generation to generation.”
