Your choice of pendant, each with its own unique Chinese blessing in black script against a red background. This pendant is made from a lucky Chinese “hong bao” (i.e., red envelope), which is used during the Chinese / Lunar New Year to spread good fortune and wishes for an auspicious new year!

LOTUS FLOWER NECKLACE: This piece is one-of-a-kind. This pendant is of a purple lotus flower on a green lily pad outlined with shimmery gold leaf. The design of the paper makes the images really 3D, in addition to the glass, it really gives the image great depth and dimension. This pendant is ONE OF A KIND, NOT TO BE DUPLICATED! To buy this item, check out its Etsy listing.
SYMBOLISM: Not only is this a beautiful design, but this paper is from a Chinese New Year greeting card, because of the symbolism of the lotus flower. There are many meanings for the lotus flower, one being the harmony and love between husband and wife, continuity of luck, wealth, promotions and children. The symbolism is also tied to just the struggle and beauty of life, as the lotus flower grows up from the mud into a object of great beauty, so is the desire that people also grow and change into something more beautiful. So the symbol represent the struggle of life at its most basic form.
GOLDEN FLOWER ON RED NECKLACE: This is another beautiful pendant made out of “hong bao”. I only have two of these, so snatch them up quickly before they are gone!
