I'm starting a new "series": Necklaces featuring Chinese zodiac pendants.
|Chinese Year of the Dragon Necklace: $20 + shipping|
February 4, 2012, marked the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. This 18-1/2 inch Year of the Dragon necklace features a lovely red agate amulet with a dragon and the Chinese word for dragon on one side, and Chinese script on the other side. Four gorgeous lampwork glass oval beads alternate with wood rondelles and crow beads. The necklace is finished with matte dark chocolate seed beads, matte soft brown bugle beads, and a gold tone toggle clasp.
In addition to celebrating the current Year of the Dragon, this necklace makes the perfect gift for someone born in other Years of the Dragon, including 1916 * 1928 * 1940 * 1952 * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * and 2000.
People born in the Year of the Dragon are said to be visionary, passionate, motivated, optimistic, principled, energetic, compelling, vibrant, and dynamic. On a bad day, they can be demanding, dissatisfied, excessive, opinionated, intolerant, overpowering, abrupt, egocentric, and unpredictable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Chinese New Year does not fall on a specific date, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Snake Year actually begins.
