Special Feel And Qualities...
Bone artwork has a very special feel about it, unlike anything else you will ever experience.
It's milky white appearance and soft flowing lines are just the start... It is soft and warm to the touch yet the finish is like polished glass, it seems to blend with your body and become a part of you, especially when worn against your skin.

The Bone Carving Becomes Part Of You Over Time...
Over a period of time the carving absorbs oils from your skin and changes color to a very light honey gold.

Maori believe this to be the carving taking on some of your spirituality or essence and thus truly becoming a part of the wearer.

A bone, jade or pearl carving is a very special piece of personal artwork to wear yourself or give to someone you really care about.

Hand Crafted...
Each piece is crafted by hand so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.
