HEADING HOME is carved from a lovely piece of local New Zealand Jade. A really high quality piece of Marsden jade in a bright and consistent green.

HEADING HOME is suspended from a fine 4-plait beige cord which can be adjusted with a couple of slip knots.

HEADING HOME is a beautiful piece of traditional jewellery, carved by a fine New Zealand artist and carver - RIC MOOR.

The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.

The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.

We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
