Pounamu Toki Earings

Pounamu Toki Earings

By Darren Stowe
 

Greenstone and pounamu toki have a spiritual meaning associated with strength (mana).

This stunning pair of pounamu earings has been handcarved in a contemporary design.

Pounamu plays a very important role in Māori culture. It is considered a taonga (treasure). Pounamu taonga increase in mana (prestige) as they pass from one generation to another. It is only found in the South Island of New Zealand.

Traditionally pounamu is always given as a gift to be treasured.

I have been working in stone (predominantly pounamu/jade) for nine years, and have worked in wood all my adult life.

I am increasingly drawn to the enduring quality of stone and the fact that it will outlive nearly all other materials.
I currently work from home in Dunedin.

(All pieces worn on the body regularly will absorb your body’s oil. Otherwise, oil wood and stone pieces from time to time using natural oils. They’ll love you for it!)
