Handcarved from cow bone. The twisting vine is is a celtic inspired design combined with an ornate engraving in a Maori design. This symbol represents the harvest it brings eternal bonding and vitality. The engraved design shows love.This is a sculptural carving, it is carved right through.

Bone is a traditional material used by the Maori for tools & jewellery. It is believed to carry the spirit of the wearer and is often worn before it is passed on as a gift.

My partner & I use only natural stains from plant leaves on our carvings to bring out the natural grain. This is a rich wood colour. They do keep their colour for a long time and develope a beautiful patina over time which can either become darker or lighter depending on the wearer. They can be worn in water, but the salt or chlorine in the water will fade the colour more quickly and dull the natural lustre.

This piece is just over 1 & 1/4 inches or 31mm long. It is hung on quality black braided cord with slip knots for adjusting the length to suit a short or long style as required.
Will be sent in a lovely black velvet gift pouch with a card describing the material and the meaning of the design.
