Collection: Hei Matau

The Hei Matau (fish hook) is a fascinating and culturally significant piece. This particular pendant is based on a treasured piece in the world-renowned Te Papa Museum in New Zealand’s capital city of Wellington. The indigenous people of New Zealand, Maori, used Hei Matau similar to this one to fish. Today, the Hei Matau pendant is believed to bring the wearer good luck during journeys, especially when traveling over water.
