CUSTOM and TRADITION

This hook is inspired by the Hawaiian Huelo (whale) and the Hawaiian fern hoio. The point is fashioned with the likeliness of the whales tail. Did you know that whales prefer one fin over another just like we prefer one hand over the other? Engraving along the limb and point limb represent the Hawaiian fern hoio or pohole. You may be wondering what motivates or inspires the carver or what designs he chooses to carve on the hook. His basic design elements usually find their origins in nature and physical surroundings. This is also true of Hawaiian tattoos. Fish hooks perpetuate the Hawaiian way of life through contemporary jewelry. Ancient Hawaiians believed that a bone necklace takes on part of the spirit of those who wear it. In this way, it becomes a spiritual link and should be handed down. The necklace becomes a spiritual link between people, spanning time and distance. A carving that has been worn by family members over many generations contains the spirit of all those people and is truly a great and powerful heirloom.

ISLAND FASHION TIP

Wearing the wrong length necklace with a particular neckline is probably the most common mistake people make when it comes to wearing jewelry. So thats why we make this necklace adjustable.

THE BONE CARVING

Carving measures 24X49mm or approximately 1 inch x 2 inches. This hand carved bone pendant is from the water buffalo, also known as the carabao. The bone we use is from the femur or large upper thigh bone, which is very dense with little marrow and cartilage. This makes for a better bone substance for carving and results in a higher quality product. The edges are smoothly rounded and the entire piece has a highly polished luster and feels good to the touch. The high density and fine grain of the bone is what gives it the ability to hold such high gloss polish. Over time, your bone pendant will pick up sebum, your bodys natural oil. This will result in the pendant slowly taking on a slight soft honey golden hue. The more color it develops the more highly it is treasured. After a while your hook will reflect your bodys distinctive signature, thus creating a one-of-a-kind necklace. This is one of the great beauties of bone crafted jewelry.

Note: Live animals are not harmed in creating this carving.

THE CORD and CLASP

Bone fish hook comes with your choice of adjustable soft cotton linen beige or black cord. Both adjusts up to 28 inches. The adjustment on the beige cord is made with an oval white bone slider and 2 small round bone grips. The adjustment on the black cord is made with an oval black wood slider and 2 small round wood grips. To wear the necklace simply place the necklace over your head and then adjust the slider bead to the desired length. This makes for a perfect fit for any clothing style.

CARE and MAINTENANCE

The necklace is waterproof and can be worn swimming and at the beach. Rain and swimming will not harm the carving. Swimming with the pendant and then allowing it to dry rapidly in the sun is not good for the carving until it has been worn for 6 months against the skin. Avoid sudden or extreme temperature changes. To keep the shine on you carving slightly buff with a soft cloth once in awhile.
