In the Maori culture of New Zealand , the fish hook (Hei Matau) is a symbol
of prosperity, fertility and safe passage over water. They were originally made
from greenstone (jade) or bone. My mother (Mihipeka) was partly of Maori
origin, I designed this pendant for her 80th birthday in 1997 .
The hook and fittings are Sterling silver on a 45cm black rubber band.
