Description

Welcome to Totally Polychromatic.

This listing is for a small slice of real New zealand jade also known as green stone or pounamu. I required the stone from my now regular dealer and fellow carver based in the Waikato discrict of New Zealand, he sells on the pieces of stone he is unable to use to keep up the crafters recycled tradions I have recycled/upcycled these off cuts to give them new life and be used again. have shaped, drilled, buffed the stone and hung it on a braided adjustable waxed polyester cord as is tradition for this stone with a box knot to make it into an adjustable unisex bracelet with pallicid shell and wooden beads for detailing.

I started learning to carve in Hokitika while backpacking New Zealand. It was the one thing I was desperate to do. It took a while to find a teacher that would teach a woman, but I got there in the end. I have been trying to get all the equipment together ever since to keep going.

This stone is only sourced in one place in New Zealand which is Hokitika on the South island. The main river source is owned and looked after by a Moari tribe and any money made from the jade when purchased by the carver would of gone back to the tribe and the local community. It plays a vital importance through history in New Zealand through the making of weaponary and tools and was once sacred to the maori culture. Now it's an important form of bringing work, craft and skills alive to many communities in New Zealand.
