Our tribal collection was inspired by the art of the Maori people who settled in New Zealand over 1,000 years ago. The pendant designs are patterned after many spirit forms in the Maori culture. Each symbol was an identifying mark that showed all that you belonged to a special group with a common bond. Today, these symbols represent shared feelings and belonging, not just with family, but with others who think like you. This Tribal token will be a sign of emotions, events or experiences that you alone know or that have been shared between your friends of family. Get more than one…start your own tribe! All pieces are cast in "Lead-Free" SafePewter™ and made in our eco-friendly, U.S. facility.
