NAVAJO - a hand made Toki pendant filled with creativity and craftsmanship.
Hand carved for us by Yannis Petzold this is a beauty! Crafted from an eclectic range of materials and with a level of craftsmanship that we rarely see.
The toki is carved from recycled Lignum Vitae wood - a hard and wonderfully grained timber. The inlay is (from bottom to top) New Zealand Cold Water Pāua Shell, New Zealand Pounamu and New Zealand Aotea Stone. These inlays are surrounded with the finest brass skirts.
Yannis has also added a 7,5,3,2 pathway created with little Sterling Silver points representing genealogy.
It is provided with a fixed length, spiralled cord in Black - hand made for this piece. The closure is a loop with a Pāua Shell toggle.
The different materials used in this piece are a gorgeous trinity of different hues from dark and mysterious, through eye popping and fascinating.
NAVAJO has clean lines, is super smooth in the hand and is exquisitely made. The level of skill required to make a piece like this is remarkable, and something we don't often find.
Take a few moments to watch the video - it reveals the beauty of the piece and will give you a little feel for the exceptional craftsmanship.
We will ship this stunning Toki with our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the design.
Shipped to you with Express Courier.
