WILD ONE

Big, Bold and Beautiful - this is a very cool, edgy piece that will attract attention for its wonderful design. We haven't had a lot of jade work from Ross recently so we're delighted to have this piece to offer.

A carved Matau (hook) crafted from New Zealand Marsden pounamu. This pendant is carved from a gorgeous deep green jade - the photos reveal the wonderful mineral inclusion that this stone is renowned for.

Also very nice, is the polished finish - it makes for a light-catching piece and is silky smooth to wear.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE DESIGN...

The matau, or hook pendant is revered throughout the South Pacific as a symbol for life, well-being and prosperity. Its significance arises from the key role that fishing has played in sustaining island families and communities. The owner of a good hook was respected and held a place of authority in the community.

We will ship this pendant to you with Express Courier on a hand plaited adjustable cord. 

We will also include our 'Kia Ora' card, explaining the meaning behind the Matau (hook) design.
