INSIGHT - named because the jade in this piece gives a wonderful insight into the internal structure of a wonderful, varied piece of pounamu.
A marvellous organic formed toki that really is all about the jade - it's a variegated green jade toki pendant, visually striking and unique. This was carved by Raegan Bregmen. He predominantly carves freeform pieces and is a master at utilising the natural beauty in any given piece of New Zealand jade.
The jade Raegan used for INSIGHT is a lovely pale blue/green colour and he has finished it in a traditional burnished matte.
Take a look at the video to see the shape of the pendant and the variability in the stone. This is original and unique, it is a gorgeous shape to wear and hold - a travel companion like no other!
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 have one only, and this piece will be removed from our site when sold. We will also include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
