A hand carved bone fish hook necklace (hei-matau) carved in a traditional style from natural bone. We have carved this piece in two sizes, so that make a great pair for a couple. Take a moment to view the video, these pieces have a lovely shape that you will see as they rotate. 

In New Zealand Maori tradition the fish hook represents prosperity, abundance, strength and determination and is also worn to show a respect for the ocean. Wear this amulet for safety when travelling, particularly over water. 

The Hook:  The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.
