These very stylised fish hook jade carvings or pendants
represent prosperity,abundance, fertility and strength. They are also
seen as good luck charms, particularly for those traveling over water.

by the Maori people.
All carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
These are very special carvings are often spectacular unique or limited edition pieces in bone, pearl, wood or jade from guest artists and are not part of our normal range.
As soon as each carving is sold it will be removed from our site permanently so check for updates often and be quick when you find one that you like, it may be your only chance!!
Each piece is crafted by hand so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Unique pieces in bone and pearl can also be designed especially for you, telling your story through traditional styling and some may also include exotic inlays of shell or precious stones.
