Recycled china koru/spiral pendant – carved from Crown Lynn ‘Blue Willow’
This china pendant has been hand-carved from a Crown Lynn ‘Blue Willow’ dinner plate. The koru or spiral carving echoes the fern frond and is inspired by Maori art. As a pakeha in Aotearoa it also recollects colonial history.
The pendant measures approximately 5.5 cm in diameter, and is hung on hand-plaited cord.
This cord has been plaited with four strands and is fully height-adjustable. The toggle at the end slides up and down, allowing the pendant to be worn high or low, dependent on mood or dress. The toggle matches the china of the pendant; a beach stone from the South Island, Te Wai Pounamu, is added for extra strength and beauty.
