NEW ARRIVAL

E iti noa ana nā te aroha - a small thing given with love.

Hand carved by Ross Crump - this is a stunning pendant.

This manaia has been carved from a gorgeous piece of flower jade. The colours in the jade vary beautifully from a bright green in the head through a stunning coppery-gold through the body. 

We have named this piece Makomako after our native Bellbird - a beautiful small bird with a beautiful, melodious song.

The body of the manaia is decorated with a koru - softening the detail of the carved head. The tail culminates in a three-fingered 'hand' which is believed to represent the holy trinity - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

This piece looks fantastic from both sides - take a moment to watch the short video to appreciate the form and colour of this piece.

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 Koru: The unfurling frond shape is symbolic of new life, new beginnings and the hope that is associated with a step into something new and unknown. It is a reflection of the spirit of rejuvenation and the personal growth that comes with undertaking new challenges.

This pendant will be delivered to you with DHL Express Courier on a hand plaited black adjustable cord.
