Polynesian fish hooks (Makau) are a specialty. An essential tool that enabled Hawaiian fishermen to provide sustenance for their families, the original hooks were carved of ivory, bone, wood, or shell. Over time, the hook became a symbol of fortitude. Simply put, it means "you can."
Today, hooks are also made of silver and gold, and fashionable as jewelry. But the message is the same: "You can provide for others -- through the vibration of your heart -- feeding loved ones with wisdom, encouragement, and kindness. And in helping others, you automatically take care of yourself."
Keoni Durant designed the Makau Pendant line over the last two decades to honor the ways of his ancestors, and is pleased to share it with you now.
