Welcome your individual best self with TE PATU NGAKAU - beating heart.

Handcrafted from New Zealand Marsden jade, this hei-matau celebrates your unique spirit with elegant curves and sharp edges. Perfect for wearing close to your heart - this piece is sure to be admired!

This hei-matau, TE PATU NGAKAU, is carved from New Zealand Marsden jade - and what an outstanding piece of stone this is! The strong green Pounamu is highlighted through Ric's handiwork - a smaller piece with a strong visual presence!

TE PATU NGAKAU is a great example of the beauty of New Zealand pounamu - and in the hands of a great artist and carver, like Ric, beautiful pendants are created. This little piece will make a great companion - a piece to accompany you on all your adventures.

The very best way to appreciate this work (apart from holding it in your hands) is to watch the brief video we have taken of it slowly revolving. The carved form is slender, slightly edgy and wonderfully balanced.

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.

We provide this with a four plait brown coloured adjustable cord. Also included, our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explain the meaning behind the design.
