Our handcarved bone pendants are created by skilled New Zealand craftspeople. Each piece is produced in consultation with local master carvers and is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional design and carries the folklore and symbology of our indigenous culture. First the shapes are marked onto beef bone which has been thoroughly cleaned to remove all traces of fats and oils. Then a bandsaw is used to cut out the rough shape which is then refined on a sanding wheel. The intricate design details are then cut with a scroll saw and finished using rotary files. After carving, the pendant is tumble polished for approximately 6 days through a series of progressively finer grades. Many of our carvings feature tattoo style designs which are engraved into the surface using a laser. After final quality control each pendant has a waxed cord and paua toggle. Each pendant passes through 6-10 pairs of hands on its journey through our factory.
