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.

Got this one to match the abalone honu (turtle) necklace. Nice quality carving of bone and abalone.
I honestly don't know where to start. They are an amazing company, make absolutely beautiful pieces and are true to what they stand for. I have many pieces by them and their customer service is amazing. They are helpful, professional and very very responsive. I just ordered another pice and see myself ordering more in the very near future. The uniqueness of the pieces is awesome, you can tell how the artist took his or her time making the piece and just makes it that much more special. I am the first mate on a whale and dolphin research ship and I will be purchasing pieces from this company to gift to my fellow scientists. As someone who lives for and loves the ocean, the meaning of these pieces is amazing and hits close to home. If I could give these guys a 20 star rating I would.
Had some issues with the necklace twisting and the resolution they gave me didn’t fix it and a piece of the cord came off and had to have it replaced.
Got the new one very quickly and very satisfied with how they handled it. Love my necklace!!!
Great quality. Looks nice. Great cause
Carving work is awesome and the shell is beautiful.
