Shopping for: Nga Waiata Rings

My frayed nerves perked no end when my Nga Waiata 'Amazonite' ring arrived.

My ring - apols for the "winter" hands.

I chose 'Amazonite' because it sounds cool and more importantly it has these powers:

brings clarity and clear spirit 
soothes emotions. 
dispels negativity 
enhances communication concerning love

Amazonite Ring

Yup.  Need all of that.

I swear it's working already.

Go on - choose one to suit you.  I got mine from Flock in Sumner.  Who - incidentally are now an on-line shop too.

Rings come in various heights and sizes.

Nga Waiata is a North Island designer and artist.  Her products are sold all around the world.  Even the wonderful Paul Smith stocks these wee beauties in his Paris store.  Makes me proud as ol' punch.

Her name is pronounced naaaa-y-a-taa, it is a maori name which means the songs or music.

  6. The story of Dubai's fall from grace is quite similar to what we see in the corporate world where gargantuan transactional corporations failed despite their enormous size. The rulers of business travel deals in Dubai harbour a similar illusion which the chief executives of failed corporations used to have-that they were too big to fail and were proved wrong by the ravages of time.
