This bracelet is so versatile - it looks great with denim for a casual look as well as adding a touch of sophistication for a dressier look.This is a classic yet casual bracelet. A large blue and white porcelain bead is the focal point. One side of the bead has a dragon and the other side has Chinese characters which most likely are "good luck" sayings. The porcelain beads and little silver-toned beads are on a wire that can be easily formed to your arm. The beads are handmade and were purchased on my trip to Shanghai. There is a toggle clasp. Bracelet measures about 8 inches (20 cm).



The Chinese porcelain beads are reminiscent of the antique dynasty porcelains which are famous throughout the world. The beads have been hand painted with Chinese characters representing longevity, happiness, wealth, love, and good fortune.
The blue & white porcelain became well developed in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), but flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. First natural cobalt was painted on the basic body. Then it would turn blue after being fired at high temperatures. The white glaze covered by a clear glaze highlighted the blue designs. The blue & white porcelain vases, plates, decorative items, and beads are different and unique.
