For this piece we have used three materials. The toki is handmade from nephrite jade, the central insert is carved from a gorgeous piece of mammoth tusk and we have capped it with Sterling Silver.
A beautiful original piece of jewellery that you will enjoy immensely. Take a moment to watch the short video - it reveals the craftsmanship, shape and the beautiful combination of materials.
The pendant is suspended with a 60cm sterling silver chain.
The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. The adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. They were used to carve ocean-going waka (sea canoes) and to build central meeting houses so they played a central role in traditional life of māori.
The toki is traditionally worn for strength and courage - to assist through lifes' challenges.
