No Two Are Exactly The Same...



This special kōauau (small flute), is named te Manawa o Te Kore. It is a part of the Healing Sound series of Taonga.


These are the most beautiful earrings I’ve ever bought - gorgeous stone and so exquisitely made - thank you!

Deal Directly With The Artist…  

There is no production line, it is just me working individually with each Taonga from start to finish…



This carving was commissioned by strong man Levi Vaoga...

Levi represented New Zealand 11 times at the World Strong Man competition! He was also the face of Mitre 10 for many years (Big is Good).

This carving has a mixture of Celtic, Samoan and Maori cultural influences and depicts his life story. It is steeped in meaning...

His amazing life story can be seen on You Tube here...

This is an example of the Bonecrafft package. Carvings come with a special box, a Certificate of Authenticity, and a story describing the meaning.

Archaeological evidence shows us that bone implements for both functional purposes and personal adornment have been with us since the development of 'civilization'.

Free Lifetime Cord Replacement Guarantee

If you want the cord to be changed for any of my Taonga, let me know and I will replace the cord absolutely free of charge. - Postage or courier fees may still apply.
