I often feel a pendant placed at the side of a necklace is rather like a surprise, something unexpected. This natural carved Burma jadeite Bi disc (24 mm across x 9 mm deep) is an emblem of harmony and long life.
The necklace itself consists of a rhythmic pattern of bead.
First there are the heat- treated green aventurine beads (10 mm) which have been inset with gold plated dragons. The dragon is a symbol of the Emperor, his power
r and playfulness, as well as the universal source of energy, referred to as “Chi”.
Then there are the Labradorite discs (11 mm) followed by rare, vintage, handmade and embossed traditional Afghan beads (8mm). Using their special and ancient techniques of placing 18 ct gold, over silver, over hardened resin, these beads give a mellow warmth.
The last elements are faceted bullets of natural rock crystal (20.4 mm x 8.5 mm), which have interesting inclusions.
I have used a gold filled on silver toggle clasp because they are both secure and easy to use.
The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 18 inches long.
