MILKYWAY - a stunning piece of art, made to wear! Beautifully carved double twist pendant with a koru carved into the centre of the base. This is a very finely crafted carving made from rare New Zealand flower jade.
We are very fortunate to have a clear view of the night sky - we are far enough away from major light sources that the starry sky is clearly visible. This piece reminds us of the MILKYWAY viewed from a clearing in the surrounding bush - an awesome sight!
We have bound this piece with a dual coloured cord - Khaki Green and Olive Green, these colours complement the stone without distracting from its natural beauty. This piece can be worn reversed - each side is quite distinct and shows the wonderfully unique colours our flower jade reveals.
The twist carving with its crisscross form represents the many paths of life and love and as such is regarded as the original eternity symbol. The single twist carving represents the joining together of two people for eternity. Its shape describes the way relationships shift, sometimes moving apart, but coming together as a couple share their lives.
It represents how the strong bond of friendship, loyalty and love last forever.
The Koru: the Māori word for 'loop'. The spiral shaped koru design represents an unfolding silver fern frond. The circular movement towards an inner coil refers to ‘going back to the beginning’. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new life, new beginnings, hope and rebirth.
Shipped with DHL Express Courier. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' cards, explaining the meaning behind both the twist and koru designs.
