What is most beautiful about a piece like this is the organic evolution from a blank canvas, to a one of a kind tapestry of abundance and remembrance.
The canvas in this case is a solid brass double curb link chain bracelet. There are six brass charms, each symbolizing a different type of abundance in Chinese culture from food to art and education. Added over time, eight more charms in shades of jade including a carved jade Buddha, a carved jade elephant, and a jade heart etched with the kanji symbol for happiness. Last but not least, a hand hewn bead of gorgeous mother of pearl.
In Chinese tradition, jade (nephrite) is thought to symbolize the five virtues of humanity: Courage, modesty, justice, compassion and wisdom. Mother of pearl is believed to attract fortune and happiness to anyone who owns it.
This bracelet measures 7.5 inches long and weighs just shy of 60 grams in jade and brass. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used. In this case, only a light cleaning took place because the patina is just so perfect.
**Our unique jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
