Chinese Zodiac Horse Gold Pendant Necklace

£158.00

Details

The Chinese zodiac Horse necklace is inspired by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Horse (Ma 马), the seventh of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. People born in the year of the Horse are filled with energy and spirit, and are always on the go, making them hard to pin-down! Ever the extrovert, Horses thrive in large social gatherings, where they revel in the spotlight. Cunning, quick-witted and good-humoured, Horses can sometimes appear self-absorbed, but will always find time for others, no matter how active they are.

Chinese calligraphy is the ancient tradition of handwriting as an art form, an aesthetic expression of language. Each piece in this collection is hand-carved by Loveness Lee as a way of practicing Chinese calligraphy in metal, a reciprocal relationship between two personal forms of handcraft. Loveness Lee skilfully weaves history and tradition into stunning abstract designs: your own small slice of destiny and fortune, to be worn, gifted, treasured, and loved.

NB: The Chinese zodiac calendar begins at Chinese New Year, which falls on a different date between 21 January and 20 February each year. If you were born in January or February, take extra care in determining your sign, and check whether your birthday fell before or after Chinese New Year. We have a Chinese Zodiac date explorer here.
