Carved Wood Makau Fish Hook Necklace
Hand carved Monkeypod Wood Makau Fish Hook necklace! The carved Makau pendant is 2 1/2 inches long and the adjustable twisted cord necklace can be worn as short as 14 inches to as long as 24 inches simply by sliding the two bone beads to desired length. Regarded as a symbol for safe passage over water, the Makau, or fishhook, brings good fortune and strength to those who wear it. Also used as OluKai's logo, the Makau has held deep cultural significance in Hawaii and throughout the Polynesian Triangle for over a millennium. Most Hawaiian fishermen wear them faithfully while at sea fishing or traveling across the ocean from island to island.

Original Hawaiian Sunrise Shell, Sharks Tooth and Seashell jewelry creations by MonicaByTheShore of Haleiwa, Hawaii. Hand crafted with Aloha on Oahu's beautiful North Shore and in Ko'Olina, on the West Side of the island.
