Each Bali Necklace helps to fund Coral Reef Conservation! Learn about our efforts!

Our Abalone Hei Matau necklace is a hand-carved representation of the traditional Hei Matau design made by the Māori - It represents Strength and Safe Passage over water. The fish hook shape finds its origins in Māori legend, that the North Island of New Zealand was once a huge fish that was caught by the great mariner Maui, using only a woven line and a hook made from the jawbone of his grandmother.

Each Bali Necklace is hand carved on the tropical island of Bali and shipped from the USA. 
Because we use 100% natural materials, there may be some slight imperfections in each piece. See our workshop.

  • Materials: Repurposed, Water-Buffalo Bone & Abalone Sea Shell.
  • Pendant size: Approximately 2.25 inches (5.7 cm).
  • Cord: One size fits all. Adjustable, bamboo cotton (choker up to 26 inches).
