Traditional Carving and Pounamu Jeweller in NZ
NZ’s greenstone jewellery, often passed down from generation to generation, carries spiritual significance. The symbolic nature of each carving plays into the decision when choosing the right piece.
- Artists carve the stones into different styles, which each take on a different meaning. If you are looking for strength, the Toki is an excellent choice because it represents the energy you desire. If you want a sense of protection, then Tiki will align with your desires because it represents the earth mother and sky father.
- With so much water around New Zealand, it is no wonder that the Hei Matau is a popular choice, as it represents a connection to the sea. When a child is born, a koru, or spiral, representing new life, or the circle of life is a perfect choice.
- No matter what shape one chooses, the stone brings strength to both body and spirit. When you wear Pounamu it absorbs some of your Mana or essence which creates a beautiful bond between the wearer, the stone and the land it comes from. Washing it every so often in natural water like rivers, lakes and the sea will keep the energy of the stone nice and clean.
