Hand-carved pounamu pendant on a tightly braided cord with sliding knots for adjusting.
The Koru design is inspired by one of New Zealand’s most sacred symbols of nature, the silver fern. The fern begins life in a spiral shape before it fully matures. Much like the young fern, the koru design represents nature, new life or new beginnings.
All of Ernesto’s pounamu is sourced from the Arahura River in the West Coast of the South Island.
Pounamu: 26mm diameter 9mm thickness
Traditionally lashed with black cord
Sliding knots for adjusting length
