FLOW - a beautiful little New Zealand Jade Matau pendant.
This pendant is a gorgeous, subtle piece of traditional jewellery carved from New Zealand jade. The jade type is called Kahurangi and is renowned for its crisp and faultless qualities. It is the perfect stone for a piece that in and of itself is not visually imposing.
We have designed this with contrast to the fore - a small carving made from beautiful jade - a bright Pohutukawa Red cord that is a strong contrast to the soft green of the stone. A small Ice White floret at the top of the carving - little details that draw the eye and create a fabulous and eye-catching 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 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.
