EXPLORE - a beautiful little New Zealand Jade Matau pendant.

A classic piece carved by Master jade carver - Ross Crump. Ross has a unique ability to bring out the very best in the piece of jade he's working with - this is very evident with these pieces - beautiful smooth, gentle lines, the tail carved with a little swing so the jade becomes light and translucent.

EXPLORE is carved from marvellous New Zealand Marsden jade - a beautiful, semi-translucent deep green stone. 

Check out the video we have taken of this piece slowly rotating - it will take you about 20 seconds to see exactly what we have here - a beautiful jade matau pendant.

The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community.

We have two sizes available (small and medium), please use the drop-down menu to make your selection.

We will provide this pendant with a hand-plaited cord which is length adjustable.

We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card explaining the meaning behind the hook design.

Delivered with DHL Express Courier.
