PERCEPTION - the ability to become aware of something using your senses....
An intricately carved pendant by one of our favourite bone carvers - Yuri Terenyi. PERCEPTION displays Yuri's exceptional talent, he has an ability to hand carve intricate, organic pieces that have an unbelievable symmetry. This is a great example of this talent!
PERCEPTION is carved from bone and stained with a tea dye that Yuri makes specifically for these pieces. Over time, and with wear, the colour of this piece will alter and improve - they seem to take on a look that is unique to the wearer depending on what they are subjected to. So a unique piece of jewellery will become a very personal piece.
We have bound PERCEPTION with a hand-plaited Wapiti Brown and Khaki Green cord and placed a little Khaki Green Floret around the cord just above the carving.
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.
