Story behind the design
The Cooktown Orchid is so synonymous with Queensland as the state’s floral emblem it is even an ‘anti-fatigue trivia’ question at various sites on the Bruce Highway that runs along the coast from Brisbane to Cairns. It is widely regarded as Australia’s most attractive endemic orchid. For many people the very name ‘Cooktown Orchid’ invokes images of tropical rainforests running down to seas filled with coral, and beaches with waving palm trees. However, this is not so, it is instead mostly found in the very different biographical zone of the open forests of Cape York Peninsular, rather than growing in the renowned Wet Tropics to the south of Cooktown as is widely believed.
These handmade earrings are made from laser cut acrylic and are available with gold coloured hoops or with a locally sourced sterling silver hoops making them the perfect jewellery for sensitive ears.
