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

The Original Hei Matau is often gifted to bring its recipient good luck. 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 repurpose 100% natural materials, there may be some slight imperfections in each piece.

Materials: Repurposed, Water-Buffalo Bone.

Pendant size: Approximately 2 inches (5 cm).

Cord: One size fits all. Adjustable, bamboo cotton up to 26 inches.

Really great piece!

The quality and design are great. This is exactly what I was looking for when I wanted to add something to my accessories that fits into the beach community I live in.

Replacement

After several years, I had worn the cord out, so decided to replace it. Quality is great, as always, and will be looking forward to many years with this one before replacing it again. Now I can get back in the water, and enjoy the new coral formations as well!

Beautiful craftsmanship

I am absolutely in love with my necklace. The carving is outstanding and the craftsmanship is amazing. The cordage and beads compliment the pendant beautifully. I could not be happier with my necklace and I would like to thank the artists for bringing this work of art into my life. Thank you Bali!
