Cross Pendant and necklace
This beautiful hand crafted Koa cross sits on cow bone.
Koa (of the Acacia family) is a tree found only in Hawai'i. Originally, Koa was reserved for the Ali'i or royalty. It was used for canoes and war weapons among other things.
The State of Hawai'i wanted the wood to be available for everyone. Thus restrictions were placed on the harvesting of the trees. The tree must naturally fall or the state must come out and pronounce the tree dead before it can be harvested.
While no large animals are indigenous to Hawai'i, the cow found its place when King Kamehameha was gifted several cows from Captain George Vancouver in 1793. Although not immediate, they proved to be a valuable resource for the economy and the Hawaiian people.
This waxed linen cord necklace is 22 inches long.
