Celebrate Chinese New Year!

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

With the approaching Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all of our Chinese character charms!

2013 welcomes in the Chinese Year of the Snake. During the celebration of Chinese New Year, families gather and celebrate for days. To usher in good luck for the coming year, food is shared, gifts are exchanged and fireworks are let off. A fun gift to make to commemorate the holiday is a chain or cord necklace with a sterling silver charm showing a Chinese character – health, happiness, family or love. These characters are often used in simple pieces of jewelry to give strength or remember someone special in your life. You could also easily add these charms to strung jewelry pieces as well. To further give your jewelry a celebratory look, you can combine the charms with bright red beads, the color of luck!

Will you be making jewelry to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year?

Sparkle! – Lindsay
