Bone Carving - Hand Carved Moose Bone Jewelry - Contemporary Designs in an
Gerry and I had spent most of our lives dreaming about going to New Zealand. In 1989 we decided to stop dreaming and actually do it. We were not expecting a life-changing event to happen once we got there, but that's exactly what happened. We discovered bone carving. "Discovering" bone carving would seem a silly thing to say to the average New Zealander. Carving is so much a part of that country, and such a basic part of the culture of the Maoris, New Zealand's native people. In New Zealand, carvings are seen everywhere, even on the fronts of buildings.We immediately fell in love with the intricate and graceful carvings that we saw and purchased several of them before returning home to the states. We had no idea that those first carvings that we carried home would change our lives forever.
