Hand carved from cow bone. This lovely Koru design is a Maori symbol of the fern frond which is a traditional symbol that is said to bring renewal & spiritual growth. I have found this design to inspire new ideas & projects and aid in adapting to new beginnings. It has been stained with plant leaves.
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. They do keep their colour for a long time and develop 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.

This is a small piece 1 1/4 inches or 31mm long. I have hung it on black waxed cord with slip knots so it can be worn a length to suit you.
Will be sent in a lovely organza gift pouch with a card describing the material and the meaning of the design.
