63 Rutherglen Rd, Paroa, New Zealand, 7805 - View the map

MY ANCESTORS HAVE BEEN JADE CARVERS FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS
My tribes the Ngati Mahaki and Ngati Waewae were the 2 Maori tribes who lived and traded pounamu on the West Coast of the Southern Alps, which is the only place where the pounamu is found in New Zealand.

I USE ONLY GENUINE WEST COAST POUNAMU (JADE)
Because of my tribal history I have customary rights to go onto the rivers and up in the mountains to gather the Pounamu. I use only this West Coast pounamu to carve the pendants and sculptures in my gallery. You'll be able to come in and handle some of the best pounamu rocks that my whanau (family) and I have found.

ALL MY PIECES ARE HAND CARVED BY ME PERSONALLY
I have personally carved all the pendants, rings, earrings, bracelets and sculptures in my studio. Come in to watch me carve, learn about the designs and the special meanings that they have.
