Do you know your birth sign in Chinese astrology? The Chinese zodiac associates an animal with each of 12 signs. Unlike Western astrological signs, these are not based on months but on years and a rotating 12-year cycle.

I'm having a lot of fun creating a necklace for each Chinese sign. So far, I have done the Years of the Dragon, Pig, Monkey, Rat, Rabbit, Snake, Horse, Tiger, Rooster, and Goat. Coming soon: Ox and Dog.
Although many of these necklaces share a common focal point -- a red agate amulet with the animal and name in Chinese characters -- each necklace is unique and one-of-a-kind, specially designed with that sign in mind.
(Just a small disclaimer: I am not Chinese. The necklace designs are not particularly "Chinese." You don't have to be Chinese to enjoy these necklaces!)
Best of all, these necklaces are attractive and eye-catching even if you don't look closely enough to see the zodiac association. It's up to you if you want to point that out.
Below are my creations so far. Can you find yourself?
