FOREST is a visually strong pendant, the blade is long and has a beautiful textured and coloured jade - this really is a piece to own and wear with pride.
We have bound this with a traditional lashing. The cord is a Wapiti Dark Brown/Khaki Green colour which we hand plait. It is length adjustable so you can position this piece where it look best. The binding on the top of the blade is a Wapiti Brown.
If you like this piece please take a moment to watch the brief video, this reveals the shape and colours through the stone quite clearly.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. Traditionally, the adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. It is a symbol of authority.
This shape is derived from a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. It was an essential tool in their daily lives, and a good quality jade adze was a prized possession.
We will deliver this to you with DHL Express Courier and include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
