Gung hei faat choih (Happy New year)



Today is not only Valentines day but also Chinese New Year - the year of the Tiger. 
It is much celebrated in Australia as we have a wonderful multicultural population. The Chinese zodiac has 12 animal signs- the tiger is a sign of courage.  Today we're off to celebrate at my in-law's house with the family  - my husband's family is Chinese. It will be a wonderful plentiful feast!

These lantern style earrings are made with shaped onyx, and vintage glass drops from Splendor in the Glass.

  1. You do make me homesick for the multicultural life in Australia. Those earings are beautiful. I can see the lantern in them and love the long red drops off them. Happy New Year!
