Hei Matau

Hei Matau
Legend holds that the north island of New Zealand was once a huge fish caught by Maui, the Great Mariner, using only a woven line and a bone hook. The fish hook remained lodged in the side of the fish and can be seen today in Hawke's Bay.
 
For the Maori, the Hei Matau represents Strength, Prosperity, Fertility and a great respect for the Sea. It is believed to grant Safe Passage Over Water and has special significance as a gift.

"Just wanted to share my story with you. I purchased a Paua Shell Hei Matau pendant a few years ago and wore it every day - I loved it. Recently, I was working at a large Country Music Festival and one of the guests was admiring my pendant. I explained the significance of it, she said "I'm flying to Hawaii next week and I'm so nervous." I took it off, put it around her neck, told her to wear it and trust that she would be safe. She smiled so big that it made my day. Now I have to buy myself a new one (maybe I should get two)."

"I purchased two items from Sean in January of this year, 2013. Before purchasing, however, I had a couple of questions for Sean regarding product and so I emailed him. Sean replied promptly and with extreme courtesy. I ordered a necklace for my wife and one for me. I was ecstatic when I received the shipment at my office from Wanderer Imports. From the time of placing the order to receiving the shipment, only a few days had passed. Not too shabby! The items were packaged safely and with care and the necklaces, I am pleased to say, are of high quality materials and workmanship. We both wear our necklaces a lot and it's great to hear the comments and questions from curious others about these unique pieces. This of course gives us a great opportunity to share the meaning of the necklaces and about Wanderer Imports. My total wrap-around experience with Wanderer Imports has been positive. I will purchase from Sean again in the very near future."

"I ordered 4 necklaces and bags for Christmas in 2012. Awesome! Within 4 days. One of my nephews, 20 yr. old EMT can't wear any kind of metal or chains so he is really thrilled. I just placed an order for MY marble charm. Thanks Wanderer for restoring my faith in online purchasing."

 "I had a great experience working with Sean from Wanderer Imports. He was helpful and personable. The service was exceptional, with my shipment going out the next day, I received my necklace within 4 days of my order. The product was just as advertised, at a great price. I will definitely order from Wanderer Imports again!"

Hope you enjoy the necklaces and stay safe on the water!
