BLUE TOTARA - a beautiful hand carved Totara Burl leaf necklace. One of the many things we love about this piece is the selection and use of materials - totara burl, and sapphire - both natural and both absolutely gorgeous!
Totara, a native New Zealand tree, is a prized material for carving and was used by Māori to build their ocean-going waka - canoes. It is a hard wood, resistant to rot and on top of that beautifully grained and beautiful!
BLUE TOTARA is beautifully carved - the artist has captured subtle details perfectly, the 'nature' of nature in this finest of carvings - a wonderful and creative pendant, signed by the artist on the back.
BLUE TOTARA was carved for us by Sami - a farmer and artist from Taranaki. He is wonderfully creative and produces original, beautifully crafted art work. These are all one-off pieces and will not be repeated. These works are a genuine example of the beauty of art created to wear.
We provide this pendant on an adjustable, beige coloured cord.
