On this black band made of multi strands of stainless steel covered in black PVC, hangs a wonderful, natural, Burma jade pendant (1 ½ inches long x 1 inch wide x10 mm deep) in white and gold colours. The carver has utilized the two, natural colours occurring in the jade to create a double gourd with a mythical beast, or qilin crawling on top of the gourd. For the Chinese, this has a specific meaning. The double gourd symbolizes healing and longevity, while the qilin is hoping to capture these attributes.
Above the jade pendant is a hand blown golden glass, set in silver (13mm). This is followed by the handmade, fair trade silver bead (10 mm), by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand. Each is crafted like a mini piece of sculpture, using 98% pure silver. Lying horizontally above the silver is a pierced natural gold Burma jade cylinder (13 mm long x 9 mm deep). And lastly, a 6 mm silver bead.
The multi bands use a magnetic clasp that twists and magnetizes together, also made of stainless steel.
The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by the Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 18 inches long with a 3 inch pendant drop.
