CLASSIC LINES TOKI
An exceptional work of carved art. This is a wonderfully creative piece made from a range of exotic and beautifully rich materials. Hand crafted for us by Yannis Petzold.
The toki is carved from a recycled piece of Lignum Vitae - a silky smooth, grainy and gorgeous wood that is beautifully finished.
The round inlay at the top is New Zealand Pounamu, the angled inlays are Mother of Pearl and Pāua Shell. The pounamu is encased in brass and the other inlays are bedded in silver.
The small 'star' inlays on the back represent the Matariki star cluster and are made from brass and silver.
The neck cord is in its own right a little work of art! A hand plaited, spiralled cord in brown that is a fixed length with a Paua Shell Toggle.
CLASSIC LINES is a very cool piece. It has clean lines, is silky smooth and exquisitely hand made by a fantastic New Zealand artist. Yannis has carved this with the flair that you would expect to find in his work - and his craftsmanship is flawless.
If you like the look of it, take a moment to watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. This reveals the quality of the carving and the beauty of this pendant - careful though, once you've looked you might have to snap it up!
We will ship this stunning Toki in one of our kete pouches with our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
