SEA SALT SKIN - a superbly carved 'one-off' piece of jade jewellery... something for whale lovers, ocean lovers, adventurers and cetologists!
A New Zealand Jade koru with whale tail or, seen another way - a gorgeous whaletail pendant culminating in a spectacular koru!
Hand carved for us by Ross Crump.
SEA SALT SKIN is a medium sized and very finely crafted piece from some of our most beautiful New Zealand jade. The jade is a crisp green carved to highlight its translucence and clarity. The perfect piece of stone for a piece of this size and design - another work of art from Ross.
SEA SALT SKIN can be worn reversed - each side is quite distinct and shows the wonderfully carving and design.
The KORU, represents a young, unfurling fern frond opening and bringing new life and purity to the world. It also represents peace, tranquility and spirituality, along with a strong sense of growth or new beginnings.
It represents how the strong bond of friendship, loyalty and love last forever.
The WHALE has quite some significance in Polynesian cultures. Here in New Zealand whales are believed to be descendants of Tangaroa - the God of the Oceans. They are regarded as sacred and supernatural beings and are believed to provide guidance and protection.
Shipped with DHL Express Courier. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the koru design.
