A gorgeous deep green manaia, hand carved from local stone (New Zealand Jade).
We've named this piece 'JADE SORCERER' - it's a beautiful little pendant that highlights the wonderful New Zealand pounamu it's carved from. Just a very cool piece of jewellery with a great meaning and, it looks and feels great! This pendant is unisex, so can happily be worn by anyone!
The manaia is a mythical creature in Polynesian culture found and respected throughout the South Pacific. Traditionally it is believed to be a messenger between man and the Gods, a kind deity that protects people and helps them communicate with their ancestors. It is believed to be the invisible light, or aura, surrounding a person.
These pendants are worn to guide and protect.
We will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia design.
