NGAKAU KAHA - strong heart

Hand carved for us by Ross Crump - a fantastic artist and carver of jade.

NGAKAU KAHA is made from beautiful, deep green New Zealand Marsden jade - in New Zealand also called Pounamu.

The body is beautifully bellied and rounded - it gives the piece a sense of significance and content - and is wonderful to hold.

NGAKAU KAHA looks fantastic from both sides - take a moment to watch the short video we have made which shows the pendant slowly rotating. This will give you a very clear picture of the shape nuances and the colour of the stone - it's well worth the few moments it will take you to watch it.

Particularly striking is the pendant's colour - a deep, deep green that is beautifully polished. It plays with the light in a myriad of ways, absorbing and reflecting, making for an exciting piece of very unique jewellery.

The Manaia: a mythical being believed to be the invisible light, or aura, surrounding a person. They represent spiritual power and are believed to be the guide that leads the spirits to heaven. They are worn to guide and protect. 

This pendant will provided with a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia design.

Delivery with DHL Express Courier is included in the price.
