A hand carved whalebone pendant - we've named this piece KERMADEC after the earth's deepest ocean trench because maybe this bone spent some time down there. This is a beautiful piece, fine and elegant for a larger hook - especially when you consider the giant creature that it honours.
A great pendant if you're looking for something beautifully crafted from whalebone. It has our Manuka Green necklace and we've bound it with our Khaki coloured cord, a very cool pendant.
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.
Whale bone is a porous material and will absorb body oils - it will turn a golden colour over time.
We provide this pendant with a hand plaited Khaki cord which is adjustable in the length. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the hook design.
