MAKAU - a Hawaiian Fishhook
A delicately carved matau, made by hand from lovely Black Jade.
In Hawaiian culture - the hook is carved facing the left so it is always facing your heart... one of the reasons we love this stunning little hook.
A very fine tribute to the matau, Hawaiian makau - which traditionally symbolises a leader, someone who will protect and provide. Perfect to express love, recognise an important anniversary or long-standing friendship, or perhaps to seal an engagement.
We have polished these until they glow!
