The Chinese zodiac Pig necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Pig (Zhu 猪), the last of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. A person born in the year of the Pig will be an optimist almost the point of idealism, but such positivity will not prevent them from displaying genuine consideration, responsibility, and freedom. This generosity of spirit means that Pigs are always forgiving and understanding, but can also manifest as a carefree, sometimes lackadaisical attitude that others find frustrating!
Chinese calligraphy is an aestheticised form of handwriting, a way of expressing language as an art form filled with meaning. Each piece in this collection is hand-carved by Loveness Lee as a way of practicing Chinese calligraphy in metal, a shared form of expression between two intimate forms of handcraft.
