"I was lost for words when I saw the Hei Toki first hand. It is obvious that Stephen puts his heart and soul into his work & it shows. Stephen kept in touch with me throughout the buying process and was a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend you support this man ! Cant wait to order a custom piece for my self !!! Dilly "
"Absolutely beautiful carving. Raised on both sides. Wonderful craftsmanship. My new favorite necklace. Shipping from NZ to U.S. was incredibly fast."
"I cannot put into words just how beautiful the necklace is in person. This is something that will last for generations to come. Extremely fast shipping. Again the craftsmanship is something to behold. Do not hesitate to purchase because I am saving up to buy more!"
"Hi Stephan - this is GORGEOUS! I bought this for myself but when my husband saw it his eyes lit up and so it is his now. I guess I'll have to buy another now for myself! Cheers and thanks so much!"
