Buccaneer - Sea Pirate

Carved from stunning black Australian jade, and green New Zealand Nephrite jade - these matau pendants are a gorgeous, small pendant.

The black jade hooks are a gorgeous deep liquorice black - and the greenstone pieces are a lovely semi-translucent green jade sourced locally in New Zealand.

As an adornment, matau are said to bring prosperity, abundance, good health and power. They are believed to lend authority to the wearer. Matau are worn as a talisman to provide protection and safety when travelling over water.

The fish hook played an important role in the lives of early Polynesian cultures as it provided the means to catch fish - a staple and important part of their diet. A good fish hook was something of real value. These values are still considered inherent in these carved representations.

We will provide these pendants with a hand-plaited, black cord which is adjustable in the length. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.

Delivered with DHL Express Courier.
