A beautiful long Marsden flower matau with traditional binding and a braided cord. A lovely mixture of pale greens and oranges swirled together gives a unique colour palette to this pendant. The matau is a strong symbol, representing good luck and safe travel across water.
Marsden Flower Greenstone comes from the Marsden area of the West Coast and is an especially distinctive type of greenstone because of its beautiful gold variegation, known as "flower."
These earrings were hand carved on the west coast of the South Island, New Zealand, by Jeremy.
