Stay GROUNDED in your truth... 

Hand carved by Ross Crump from a stunning piece of Marsden Flower Jade. A mix of light green - almost semi-translucent - and a splash of milky white green on the bottom half - eye-catching and a marvellous example of nature creating art! 

Ross has effectively released the natural beauty of the stone, creating a unique piece of art to wear.

The body of the manaia culminates in a fish tail - a gentle organic detail which contrasts with the detail of the carved head. This establishes a connection between the ocean and the land - perfect for a piece that comes from an island nation.

GROUNDED looks fantastic from both sides - take a moment to watch the short video we have made which shows the pendant slowly rotating. This will give you a very clear picture of the shape nuances and the gorgeous jade - it's well worth the few moments it will take you to watch it.

The Manaia: a mythical being believed to be the invisible light, or aura, surrounding a person. They represent spiritual power and are believed to be the guide that leads the spirits to heaven. They are worn to guide and protect. 

The Hook:  The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life - what a lovely sentiment to gift to someone important to you.

This pendant will be delivered to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Manaia and Hook design.
