SUNSHINE VALLEY - named for the wonderful colours in this beautiful piece of New Zealand Flower Jade.
Created by the wonderful artist, Jen Hung!
Jen has done a beautiful job at utilising her creative skill to bring light and life to this lovely Toki. This is a lively and visually cheerful piece - carved from flower jade from the Marsden Valley on New Zealand's South Island West Coast.
SUNSHINE VALLEY is provided with one of Jen's fantastic, colourful cords! This cord will have you feeling good every time you slip it on - gorgeous colours that complement the stone.
Take a moment to view the photos and video to appreciate this carving in all its' glory!
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.
