Gold Capped Flower Jade Toki

Sands Carving Studio

PGO1483S

Hand made Marsden flower jade tear adze pendant known as Raukaraka Pounamu from the west coast of the south island of New Zealand. 

This toki has been capped with 9ct gold by John Mayo, and it is suspended by a gold plated sterling silver chain.

 In the ancient Māori world, the Toki are adze that were vital tools in everyday life. Toki have come to represent the strength and skill of an individual, and the acquisition of knowledge and mana (prestige).
