This large matau pendant was carved for us by Ric Moor. It is a lovely hook pendant carved in a light almost lime green piece of New Zealand jade.
STEADFAST is a bound Matau, carved with Ric's beautiful craftsmanship - he has finished it with a soft polish that glows and really is gorgeous to handle. STEADFAST is a pendant to wear all the time.
Ric tells us that he prefers this soft matte finish to a higher polish because, with time and wear, the pendant will adapt and change with the owners lifestyle and become a 'better' piece. Well if this becomes better it will be pretty amazing because the jade is beautiful right as it is!
Watch the brief video we have made of it slowly revolving. It will reveal all the angles and subtle variations in colour, and maybe help you imagine how this piece will make you feel when you slip it over your head.
The Hook - Matau: 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.
Shipped to you with DHL Express Courier and will be provided with our 'Kia Ora Cards' explaining the meaning behind the hook design.
