Product Description

Keoni's unusual six-barb design was inspired by an ancient Hawaiian fish hook found in a cave on Maui. Now in a private collection, the original was carved of whale ivory, and may have been used by royalty.

Part of Keoni's 2011 Makau Pendant Collection, the hook symbolizes fortitude -- it means you can provide for yourself and others.

  • Sterling silver pendant is rhodium-treated for durability and shine. 
  • Also available in gold and platinum.
  • Measures one inch wide by one and five-eighths inches high (1”W x 1 5/8H).
  • Back side is hollowed out.
  • Can accommodate up to a 4mm chain or cord.
  • Shown on 1.4mm silver chain or 3mm black leather cord (sold separately).
  • Cords and chains sold separately.

    I bought this for my instructor at school as a graduation gift to him. Cause he had given me so much and been there for me. When I read the meaning behind this, IT WAS SOLD from that moment!! It's beautiful and crafted so well! I will definitely buy more!! You art work and how you put so much thought behind your pieces shows that you love your work and take pride and value in them. The shipping was super fast!!! I can honestly say I'm one happy customer!!! And if I ever get around to visiting I will be sure to stop by. ;)

  3. Spectacular 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2013

    Just received the Maui 6 barb fish hook pendant today. It is truly spectacular! I also ordered the leather necklace to compliment the pendant. The leather cord is of high quality with sturdy end caps. The pendant looks better in person than on the website. It arrived in a timely manner, well packaged with a gift bag, gift box, and a signed card by Keoni himself! I would highly recommend this item- a work of art. Thank you!!

  4. Masculine, Unique 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2013

    I was looking for something different and that nobody else had. It had to be something that made a statement, something that would make people take notice and ask what it was about, my 6 barb Makau Hook does all that. The history behind the hook really depicts my life. The leather rope style cord is also unique, the combination of the two are perfect. Thank you K.D for making the perfect necklace for me. Aloha

  6. A precious connection to Kaua'i 5 Star Review

    A truly beautiful and heartfelt piece that captures the history and magic of Kaua'i. Keoni's passion is a tremendous inspiration to all of us who care about the Kaua'i culture and all living things on Earth.

  7. Unique 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2012

    A few days ago I was at a little market on Kaua'i and I came across Keoni and his work. Already owning multiple Makau (fish hook) jewelry, I found his work really unique. The Six Barb Makau was especially striking because I've never seen anything like it so I bought it and it was worth it. It is crafted with high skill and shines above the rest of my jewelry. Also I find the piece that connects the Makau and the chain really excellent, because its made of sterling silver I don't have to worry about the Makau randomly falling off as I encountered with my other jewelry.

  8. Fantastic pendant! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2011

    I met Keoni on Kauai and he showed me his work. I have the Maui style Makau and it is a beautifully crafted piece of jewelry. It is a one of a kind pendant that looks great on my chain. If you have a love for Hawaii as I do it is a must have. Keoni was very gracious and his work is first class. Mahalo Keoni!
