Crafted from a sliver of bright, clear inanga jade found in the Arahura River, this 73 mm long and 48 mm wide double-sided pendant has been carved to show the outer surface of the boulder from which it split away at its top while also displaying the brilliance of its colour and translucency through a high polish. The niho or tooth form is a common Maori form, and this piece of stone does it the greatest justice.
Large Niho Pendant
This pendant comes with a nylon cord hand-woven by the carver. These cords are very durable, allowing you to safely wear your pendant 24/7 if you like (even in the shower). However they do wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced. Even so, a person who lives a vigorous lifestyle can reliably expect their cord to last at least two years; and a person living a quieter life can expect their cord to last a lot longer.
