Pounamu is the Māori name for greenstone found in New Zealand’s South Island and revered as taonga (treasure). This beautiful piece of pounamu is carved by expert stone carver Johnathan Percy in his Waikato studio, whose contemporary style is inspired by his love of nature and native birds. Johnathan Percy embraces each stone’s natural form; what some may see as imperfections, he chooses to highlight as unique characteristics in each of his gorgeous carving creations.
Each piece of pounamu jewellery has been made by hand and is one of a kind. Variations in the colour and shape of the pounamu stone may occur as a result. This only adds to the unique beauty and character of each piece.
