|Year of the Goat Chain Agate Pendant Fringe Necklace: $24 + shipping|
This whimsical, dramatic, one of a kind necklace celebrates the Chinese Year of the Goat with a red agate amulet that features a goat and the Chinese symbol for goat on one side, and Chinese characters on the other side. The amulet hangs on antique bronze chain. On either side of the amulet are dangles I created from paper beads with Chinese lettering, antique brass leaves, beige glass pearls, and bronze seed beads. These dangles create a fringe effect. The necklace has a lobster claw clasp and can be adjusted from 18 to 20 inches in length.
People born in the Year of the Goat are said to be inventive, sensitive, perseverant, whimsical, well mannered, and tasteful. At their worst, they can suffer from parasitism, lack of foresight, tardiness, pessimism, impracticality, or worry.
This attractive, unique necklace is, of course, an ideal gift for someone born in The Year of the Goat.* But what if you're not into Chinese astrology? No problem. The amulet does not scream "Year of the Goat." It can easily pass for a simple, lovely red agate pendant.
*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 Goat Year actually begins.
