KARAPOI - Surround

A large and striking double koru pendant carved in New Zealand pounamu - a wonderful, colourful flower jade.

This pendant is a large, beautifully carved and striking work of art. It is carved with depth and width eight and gravitas! KARAPOI is a very significant piece, and one that will become an heirloom - a piece to pass down the generations.

Kerry has used a New Zealand Marsden Jade for this carving. It is a wonderful piece of stone - textured and rich. It is carved as a symbol of, and reflection on, the inevitable ups and downs one confronts on the journey through life. And a symbol that a fresh start is always worth the effort!

KARAPOI is provided with an adjustable cord we have plaited in Sage Green and Harvest Gold. A carefully thought through pendant, with considerable history sitting behind the design.

The Koru: the Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’.  The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.

The shape is streamlined, gloriously curved and quite unique. Take a look at the video and you will appreciate the artistry of this beautiful piece.


Also included, our 'Kia ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the design.
