Matakahi on silver chain

He iti te matakahi, pakaru rikiriki te tōtara

A wedge may be small but it can break up the tōtara into fragments.

As this whakatauki so aptly describes, although small a wedge can make big changes.  Similarly, we can all be like that. A small act of kindness, a gentle word spoken, a little forgiveness. We can be the wedge that makes big changes for the better in the lives and the world around us. This taonga was carved to be a beautiful reminder of the power we hold as individuals to be a wedge of change for the better.

Then, get a little sun behind this taonga and anana – te ao mārama! (The world of light).  And look at those fluro-green chromite inclusions…it’s a little wedge of pounamu deliciousness.

Set on a lovely classic snake chain, the silver really makes the green of the pounamu pop.  It sits elegantly at the nape of your neck, adding a touch of class to any outfit.  It would make a lovely present for either your tamariki or your partner and looks equally good on tāne as wahine.

We source all our sterling silver chain from second hand shops to reduce our impact on Papatūānuku.
