Little toki

This is just a sweet wee toki.  In beautiful swirling grey serpentines and cream nephrite, you can wear this toki either way – both sides are different and equally beautiful.  This toki is perfect if you are looking for a little gift to tell someone you are thinking of them or that you just think they are great.


The Story

The toki was one of the most important tool for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. It was also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
