Part of carving is knowing where to place the elements of the stone that stand out. This striking pendant carved by Tamaora Walker is a prime example - with the unique flower jade colourations focusing the eye towards the stylised koru inset. The golden yellow hues which flow elegantly down this toki make it a special piece to be cherished forever. #toki #koru #pounamu

We have a beautiful range of New Zealand pounamu plaited bracelets, designed by our kiwi-based artists such as Alex Sands, Kyohei Noguchi and Sheree Warren. Every piece of stone used to craft each bracelet is slightly different. Each one is unique in its properties, textures and tones; from deep, rich teals and sea greens as if depicting the depths of the ocean, through to soft limey translucence and handsome yellows of flower jade. #bracelets #jadebracelet #jadejewellery

記得是2012年或13年的時候,看了《地心文明桃樂市》一書,書中提到那裡有個玉石神廟,於是就請前往紐西蘭旅行的姊姊幫我帶回了紐西蘭碧玉的飾品,手串和項鍊。
項鍊原本只用黑色單繩簡單串著,所以一直都沒有佩戴;學了魯凱族編繩之後,一直惦記著要幫他編一條屬於他的項鍊,於是今晚完成了;使用南島嶼族(台灣魯凱)的編織法為南島嶼族的掛墜(紐西蘭毛利)製作 是再適合不過了。
-
爬文再次尋找這個墜子的意義,剛好文章作者收到的也是玉扁棍造型的,她說她的毛利朋友告訴她:「這個玉佩只能贈予,不能自己買。它將保佑你健康平安,給予你力量和勇氣。」剛好是姊姊送我的,回憶兒時,我的母姊確實帶給我力量和勇氣守護我平安長大。
-
紐西蘭玉對於毛利人來說既珍貴又神聖,主要是產於河谷的軟玉(閃玉),只產於紐西蘭南島的西海岸,呈礫卵狀,色調常為綠、深綠、暗綠和黑色,有的具有美麗的菠菜綠色(比祖母綠深,有灰色調),透明度一般也很好。
紐西蘭玉現今常雕刻圖騰做為掛墜,圖案和毛利文化息息相關,有著不同的寓意,其主要包括提基、馬奈阿、魚鉤狀、銀蕨初露狀、扭轉狀及短棍狀。
玉扁棍原是毛利酋長隨身必備的自衛武器,也是他身份的象徵。
而短棍狀的紐西蘭玉掛墜是玉扁棍的簡化,代表著力量和勇氣。

Another find I dug out from my collections while in Auckland.
White rind flower jade, beach tumbled pebble.
It is exceptionally rare for the soft albite/calcite inclusions to survive the often violent tumbling process.

So to celebrate being banned from commenting on the 'Ngai Tahu Authentic Pounamu' page on Facebook... Here's a cobble from my collection that looks identical to west coast river rock.
The comment that got me in trouble? 'Stop lying to your buyers and your audience. Stone sourced from Kati waewae and Kati mahaki Pou collectors is still authentic and legitimate, and [New Zealand] jade can also be found outside of the Kai tahu runanga'. This was in response to their claim that all stone without their authentication label is STOLEN.
This is public knowledge. It's not slander, it's not offensive.
Yet as always, Mawhera Inc are putting their corporate interests first.

Two beautiful pieces, hand carved from Maraden pounamu ❤️ the shape of these pieces is referred to as a toki, originally a tool made of stone designed for cutting and carving. When worn around the neck, the toki is symbol of strength, determination and mana 😌

Hey followers!! Are you a NZ carver, either just starting up or need practice using different stone?? Well here's your chance to score some sweet Pounamu!! I'm looking for a carver (of any level) to create a decent sized pekapeka and tiki out of one of my better jade cobbles and in exchange provide the carver (or their place of work) with some extra cobbles of awesome stone.
I will cover shipping to any non rural address!! DM me if your interested.

New creation. Maori influenced Pukana face. I really enjoyed working on this piece, and the shifts I experienced while making it. #nzpauashell (animal matter) eyes, #nzpounamu (mineral matter) tongue and #nzkaurigum (plant matter) third eye.
