In Chinese culture, gourds represent happiness and good luck, as does the number 8 which is equivalent to Lucky 7 in Western culture. The gourds are purposely shaped like an eight for this reason. Each gourd pendant is made with brown speckled clay, hand-formed, and glazed all the way around.
Approximate length 1.25"-1.5", width: .75" - 1".
Gourds are not uniform and do not look exactly the same, as they were shaped by hand. While sturdy enough for daily wear, please store with care due to the fragile nature of the material.
The maker will choose the cord color and type that best suits the piece. However, if you prefer cotton or leather over the other, please leave a note at checkout. Cord measures at approximately 32 inches.
