The Chinese zodiac Rat necklace is inspired by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Rat (Shu 鼠), the first of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. A person born under the sign of the Rat benefits from lightning-fast responses and sturdy instincts! As such, they are able to easily adapt to unfamiliar situations or environments, while a bountiful imagination and keen eye for observation help them to seize upon each opportunity that life presents. Rats are also naturally and insatiably inquisitive, ever keen to try their hand at new skills.
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.
