CLOSEKNIT - a very cool, hand carved disc pendant made from a bright green/orange coloured flower jade. The front face is a weave design and the back is flat. It is provided with a fixed length black cord with a jade toggle and loop closure. This design is inspired by the fabulous woven kete - traditional baskets that are woven in flax, locally known as harakeke.
We're thrilled to have had this jade pendant carved for us by Ana Krakosky - she has crafted a wonderful piece of jewellery that has its origin in a very traditional piece of Māori handcraft.
Injecting a contemporary perspective to traditional forms adds to the traditional artform and challenges the artist community to create new ideas, to bring current thinking and ideals into their work. This approach is evident in Ana's creative approach - it produces some gorgeous, unique and very beautiful art for you to wear. CLOSEKNIT is a very lovely piece of jade jewellery and a great example of this.
