Sterling siver, paua and paua pearl Maori Kete pendant

Sterling siver, paua and paua pearl Maori Kete pendant

$360.00 NZD

According to Maori traditions the kete, or woven basket, represents a container of wisdom and knowledge. Used as containers for gathering and storing crops and seafood, the Kete are skilfully woven from flax, or Harakeke, made in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on their purpose.

Taking this design idea, we have woven this kete pendant in solid sterling silver inset with a piece of selected Paua Shell. This pendant is further enhanced by a 5mm "A" grade Paua Pearl set into a 9ct. Gold stud setting, embedded into the woven bag.

Beautifuly detailed, this is a truly unique piece of jewellery.
Pendant size: W 30mm. x H 27mm.(W 1.2" x H 1.1").

This example is on a fine silver belcher style chain 42cm(17inch.) long.
