PELORUS - a beautiful drop pendant that is all about the rare jade it's made from. Handcarved by New Zealand carver Clem Mellish, PELORUS is a wonderful pendant - carved to highlight the natural beauty of the stone. It is a large, organic drop shape, polished and delightful to hold. We can imagine PELORUS worn under a shirt - a personal piece of jewellery worn for wearer rather than as a display piece.
The stone comes from the Peloru River - a river in the Marlborough region in the Northern South Island of New Zealand. It is rare to find jade outside the West Coast and it is usually local carvers, like Clem, that find and carve this stone. This particular piece is beautiful - a deep green colour, it looks as though it has picked up the colours from the river and surrounding environment.
Take a look at the video - you will see that this piece has real form. It is wonderfully coloured - something best seen in the video.
We will ship this pendant to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited, adjustable cord.
