Fish Hook Pendant Necklace

$65.00 USD
This beautifully carved fish hook necklace measures a shade over one inch long, it is completely 3D and expertly sculptured on all sides. I cast it in solid white bronze, silver plated to keep it bright, then oxidized in the recesses to highlight the ornate carving.

The meaning of the Hawaiian fish hook pendant came from the extraordinary respect Hawaiians have had for the ocean, which has provided sustenance and enabled travel. Hawaiian Life details the history of the makau, as this pendant is called in Hawaii. Initially, the makau was put to practical use in fishing. It is now frequently worn around the neck for its symbolic power and perceived benefits. Wearing the fish hook pendant is thought to bring about good luck and prosperity as well as strength.
