Evolve has quite a large range of beads.
These designs based or related to New Zealand's indigenous people the Māori are most attractive.
About Aotearoa... Evolve-1
from top left to down right: focal charm 'four winds', focal charm 'energy-eternal', 'safe travel', 'growth', 'Tuatara', 'ancestry mask', 'pacific mask', 'Aotearoa's heart'.

These are certainly on my wishlist!

They are lovely! I was backpacking in Australia and New Zealand some years ago and NZ is one of my absolute favorite places in the world. It would be cool have some NZ themed beads to remember the trip with Smile

MM is right, I have 2 Evolve Twists so far and you can see them on a combo

My source was this fantastic shop, I think they ship worldwide too:

How large are the holes in the silvers? I'm liking the Koru bead... Very Happy

Hmm, that Koru bead might be a substitute for Joyful. Not the same, of course, but the spiral on top looks more substantial than TB's Spiral design.

I was just looking at MMP's link, it says that the Evolve beads will fit Pandora, so they must have the larger holes.

They have slightly larger holes, but somehow it's not that noticeable.
A wonderful heavy and very detailed quality if you get the real thing, remember I got some Evolve fakes from my BFF for my birthday!
When I contacted the seller where I bought my original Evolve beads to tell him about the fakes (my friend bought them elsewhere directly in NZ), he though didn't call them fakes, he wrote 'there are similar beads made to accomodate every taste and budget'. So I can only warn about buying from ebay or from dubious sources as the beads she got where cheap, cheap looking and not made from silver, though definitely sold as Evolve beads to her!

the cost is ok, its the shipping if you bring in more than one bead, customs and excise will charge you and our post office will charge £8.00 handling fee plus the relevant import taxes.. so... what we need is a new zealand troll fairy ;-) Anyone.? Love the pacific mask
