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.

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 up to 26 inches.

Second purchase of this item. First one had the mother of pearl peel off. Was told the inset only lasts a year. Please be aware your “decal” will gone off with normal use.

Have to admit, this is very nice craftsmanship. Traveled around the world picking up nik naks, and I have to admit that I am very happy with this purchase! Greece, Philippines, Taiwan, Hawaii, and all over Mexico - this piece is one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong, there are some great things to find in any of those countries. However, this is still one of my favorites.
