Maori Koru

The Maori Koru (kaw roo) design is inspired by the New Zealand fern frond unfurling as it grows. It represents peace, tranquility, personal growth, positive change, spirituality and awakening. It is associated with new life and harmony.The Koru is also often associated with nurturing and endearment. When the Koru is interlocked with others it represents the strength and purity of a loving relationship within a family. Jewelry of the koru design is often given to a new parent or child, newlyweds, or anyone starting on a new phase of their life.

Thanks Steph - you caught me half way through fixing the post. Yeah that's the design - it is a pretty rough sketch but you get the idea. I added a picture of the source of inspiration :).

If you are using Internet Explorer the purple is kind of obnoxious but looks pretty good in FireFox. Sorry. I gave up on IE quite awhile ago :P.
