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 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. Keep away from heat sources and do not submerge in water. To clean, use a damp cloth and pat dry. Treat with care to avoid scratches. Hand crafted in Loveness Lee's London workshop. Individually cast in Sterling Silver and Vermeil Gold Plated in the UK. Sterling Silver Vermeil Gold Plated Chain. Hallmarked at the Assay Office London. Color: metallic
