The pendant is 86mm in length and 46mm at its widest. It is carved from pounamu we have collected from the Rimu Area, just South of Hokitika, on the West Coast of the South Island.
The Hei Matau has a very strong waxed nylon cord so the pendant can be worn ALL the time - even in any kind of water. It is four strands of cord that have been hand platted into a special, round, 4-plait. The cord is adjustable by pinching the special knots between your thumb and finger and pulling.
The pendant has no back or front and can be worn either way.
Pendant Meaning: The Hei Matau / hook gives the wearer strength and determination.

It also provide the wearer with a safe journey through life - both a safe physical journey, especially over water and also helps them get through any hardships and tough times they may face.
