Old Jade Phoenix, Boylon Hand Blown Glass

Pendant Necklace

Approx 4" drop, on an adjustable leather cord.

 

$240 

This necklace is made with a nicely carved Chinese brown jade stylized phoenix.  I have topped him with a fabulous hand blown glass bead that is mostly gold with areas of green and very dark navy blue.   The entire pendant drops 4” from a natural leather cord that can be adjusted in length from 13” to 26” so it can be worn a variety of lengths.  This is a very striking necklace and the glass bead is so beautiful.

The hand blown glass bead is one of the one-of-a-kind beads by renown glass artist, Tom Boylon.   It is a dark blue background with golden bubbles that bubble out from the bead.

The phoenix, a mythical bird, is the emblem of the Empress and of beauty. It only appears in time of peace and prosperity.   It is believed that a following of smaller birds is always present when the phoenix is flying.  It is symbolic of prosperity, rich harvests, and beauty.

Chinese royalty has worn jade for centuries.   It is believed to be a spiritual stone and has been called the jewel of heaven.  It represents the five principal virtues:  charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom.  From cloudy white to golden brown, light to dark green, to rare lavender, jade is the most highly prized Asian gemstone.  Jade has been regarded as the most precious stone for thousands of years.  It is believed to protect the wearer and ensure good luck and good health as well as to increase life span.
