CUSTOM and TRADITION

The engraved pattern throughout most of the hook is a lauhala (woven) pattern. This pattern is also commonly used for Hawaiian tattoos. In addition to the barb on the point, this hook also has a trio of barbs along the limb. Hawaiian bone fish hooks were once used as tools for harvesting marine life and are now reminiscent of an ancient craft and lifestyle. This hook represents strength and determination and brings peace, prosperity and good health. It also provides safe journey over water. 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 30x43mm or approximately 1 1/4 inch x 1 3/4 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

Traditional Hawaiian lashing is used to attach the hook to the necklace cord. The fish hook comes on your choice of a beige or black adjustable soft cotton linen cord and adjusts up to 28 inches. The adjustment is made with an oval white bone slider and 2 small round bone 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.
