THE CHALLENGER - confront any challenge that awaits 

A small yet beautifully striking New Zealand Jade Pounamu manaia pendant, hand carved by Shaun Gardiner. This is a very finely crafted piece from some of our most beautiful New Zealand jade. It is a beautiful deep forest green colour that is perfect for this carved manaia.

We have bound this piece with a hand-plaited Olive Green cord with a floret popper in Burgundy, a colour that reflects the land of New Zealand.

This is a very light pendant and is suitable for anyone to wear. It is finished in a polished matte that glows - angular and a little edgy, this is a fantastic contemporary design of a traditional form.

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. 

Shipped with DHL Express Courier. We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the manaia design.
