This piece is a beautiful Brian Hill toki, bound by his wife Hene. The combination of their work produces some of the best quality jade pendants we have seen.
Brian has used a super dark green piece of pounamu for the OPTIMIST. It is perfectly dressed in a dark brown binding which in itself is a work of art. The jade has been polished to a burnished matte finish which is close to the traditional look and feel of hand-worked jade.
This toki will make a lifelong companion.
The toki or adze was an important tool for the polynesian people, used to build meeting houses and shape their sea-going canoes. It has been traditionally worn to give strength and courage to the wearer.
We will deliver this to you with a dark brown, adjustable and hand-plaited cord and your package will include one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
