Year of the Rooster Necklace: $24 + shipping
As some of you already know, I am doing a series of necklaces in celebration of the various Chinese zodiac signs. 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!

In this one of a kind 24 inch necklace, antique brass plated Rollo chain is accented with red multi floral ceramic rounds, a Chinese zodiac rooster coin, a red porcelain rooster bead, and a large 40mm faux Chinese coin. Together with an antique brass plated pewter Del Sol toggle clasp from TierraCast, these elements combine to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Rooster.

This is an ideal gift for someone born in The Year of the Rooster.*  Not into Chinese astrology? Good news: It's also perfect for someone who loves roosters, values Chinese culture, or appreciates a stunning, unique necklace.

People born in the Year of the Rooster are said to be alert, cultivated, direct, entertaining, expressive, knowledgeable, meticulous, resourceful, and resilient. At their worst, they can be vulnerable, critical, proud, blunt, argumentative, impulsive, vain, selfish, and pretentious.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: The Chinese New Year does not fall on the same date every year, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Rooster Year actually begins. To determine your Chinese zodiac sign, consult  a book or web site such as the one at this link: http://www.annabelburton.com/chinese_years.html
