Going back to my Asian roots, I made these Good Luck fish to celebrate Chinese New Year. Because the Chinese character for fish (yu 鱼) is pronounced the same as the Chinese character for surplus (yu 余), the fish symbol is frequently used to symbolize good luck, good fortune, long life, children, etc. The Water Element connection gives Fish the connotation of the subconscious, emotions, healing and purification.
In the Christian culture, the Fish symbol symbolizes salvation in Christ through water baptism.
Because of the nature of handmade jewelry, each piece is slightly different. This necklace can be shortened or lengthened to fit.
