Details

The Chinese zodiac Snake necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy of Snake (She 蛇), the sixth of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Traditionally held to be the most enigmatic and inscrutable among the animals of the zodiac, individuals born in the year of the Snake are endowed with enhanced intuition and a refined sense of judgement. Snakes can be private, even taciturn, but this is only because of their resolve, desire to succeed, and dislike of failure. Wise, thoughtful, and considered, a Snake will always find a way to achieve their goals.

Chinese calligraphy is the tradition of handwriting as an art form: an aesthetic, physical 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.
