AUTHENTIC Shane McIntosh Wearable PEBBLE! MADE FROM MOST SOUGHT AFTER GRASS GREEN MARSDEN FLOWER JADE. This is special with Fantastic Binding, adjustable Length. You will find a good quantity of Shanes real quality carvings in my shop only (Ask for a specific design and I can have it made especially for you by Shane). WITH THE BEST TRADITIONAL BINDING POSSIBLE. This is SMs new diversification and his fluency and fabulous finishing shows in everything he does! In shops in New Zealand.

Toki is an adze used for carving wood; this is lashed with braided cord in a style unique to NZ. The carvers developed a style of wearing this around the neck so their prized possession (wood carving tool) will not be misplaced. Why is this a QUALITY one?

The binding (also called lashing) sits inside the well notched slot, which has been created by cutting out the Jade on the sides locking the cords & reducing friction and movement of the cord, much more extra work than just binding over the jade. No shortcuts taken of sticking the cord to the jade that later comes off. Cord is perfectly bound not showing any Jade beneath through windows. Cord going around the neck is braided. Sliding cord which allows you to adjust the length as per your requirements. Has sliding knots with ends finished in lashed/bound molten knots to have a secure slip knot, unlike the knotted ends found in cheaper versions. 7 MIRROR POLISH on a natural shaped pebble.

71 X 40 X 15 Mms (chunky). 2 3/4X 1 1/2 X 5/8 Inches.

58 grams or over 2. COMES WITH WAXED BRAIDED CORD (ADJUSTABLE LENGTH) READY TO WEAR!
