The Chinese zodiac Rooster necklace is inspired by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Rooster (Ji 鸡), the tenth of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Roosters are moral, motivated, and shrewd, and are blessed with a natural, effortless beauty. Someone born under the sign of the Rooster might drift from interest to interest or from project to project, but will become single-minded in their perseverance once they have put their faith in something.
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.
