Tiger Chinese Zodiac Necklace
The Chinese zodiac Tiger necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Tiger (Hu 虎), the third of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Courage, self-assurance, competitiveness, and spontaneity: these are the traits that make a typical Tiger! As such, those born under the sign of the Tiger are often extremely charismatic; while the popularity this brings can be offset by a tendency towards irritability and impulsiveness, Tigers are, ultimately, recognised as charming friends and respected colleagues.
Chinese calligraphy is an aestheticised form of handwriting, a way of expressing language as an art form filled with meaning. Each piece in this collection is hand-carved by Loveness Lee as a way of practicing Chinese calligraphy in metal, a shared form of expression between two intimate forms of handcraft.
