SAUNTER - the perfect name for a Toki that displays a beautiful array of earthy greens and subtle curves and invites you to take with you on your journey. The colouring and texture varies a little from front to back so you have a pendant that looks fabulous whichever side you choose to wear it. Slip it over your head and you'll be donning a stunning piece of wearable art.
A beautiful large Toki from Darren Hill.
SAUNTER is carved from a lovely piece of local New Zealand Jade. The quality of the workmanship and design is outstanding - this is a piece you will want to wear all the time. It is suspended from a black cord which can be adjusted. SAUNTER is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery and one that will last a lifetime and beyond.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
