HELIOS: The Greek God of Sun - brought the sun across the skies. A perfect Toki for someone who enlightens and brightens your life.
This is an absolute masterpiece! An outstanding piece of jade, carved to highlight its natural beauty. Best part being you can wear this Toki either side. The stunning deep orange colours on one side reverse to display an indulgent minty blue green on the other - two pendants in one!
The craftsmanship in this piece is spectacular - crisp, clean and precise lines, a hand carved work of beauty.
We've hand plaited an Olive and Gingernut cord which really adds to the tones and texture of this piece!
New Zealand Flower jade at its finest.
We'll let the photos, and the video, speak for this gorgeous pendant.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through life's challenges.
We also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
