Based on the shape of an unfurling baby fern (see below), the spiral or Koru is a Maori symbol of Creation, New Life, Rebirth, Growth and Peace. The circular shape conveys perpetual motion through life, while the curling inward represents a return to the origin.
These Koru each come on an adjustable necklace cord, and are priced at $15 apiece. Each necklace comes with an informational card describing the meaning of the symbols (particularly good for giving gifts) and and USPS first class shipping is $5.95 no matter how many you order.
