Toki Pounamu Earings

By Dan Millett
 

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

These stunning pounamu earings have 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.

Originally from San Francisco Dan sailed to New Zealand where he fell in love with the pounamu and stayed.
His work combines silver-smithing techniques with stone carving and always the natural quality of the stone is foremost in his designs.
Dan believes a plain bracelet can be treasured for it's simplicity, a tangled wire ring for it's complexity and that light coming through a piece of pounamu shows us the inner essence of the stone.
