KORU - A large and striking koru pendant carved in New Zealand flower jade.

Kerry has used a New Zealand Marsden Jade for this carving. It is a wonderful piece of stone - textured and rich. It reveals a mix of colours - orange and greens all highlighted with a soft, velvety polish.

This pendant is a large, beautifully carved and striking work of art. It is carved with depth and width and has a real heft - it is a very significant piece of jewellery.

He has carved this piece as a symbol of, and reflection on, the ups and downs one confronts on the journey through life. Like the koru's shape, there are ups and downs in every life.

KORU is provided with a fixed length cord and Jade toggle. If you would like a different coloured cord, fixed length or adjustable, please let us know in the comments section at checkout.

KORU is a carefully thought through pendant, with considerable history sitting behind the design.

The Koru: the Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’.  The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.

The shape is streamlined, gloriously curved and quite unique. Take a look at the video and you will appreciate the artistry of this beautiful piece.


Also included, our 'Kia ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the design.
