Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
Jenne Rayburn Handcrafted Jewelry and Wearable Art is showcasing horse jewelry designs. The intelligent and communicative horse is the symbol of the 2014 Chinese New Year, which is the 31st of January. The pieces, made of polished sterling silver, lustrous 18-karat matte gold plated brass, antiqued sterling silver plated brass, and raw brass, capture the hard working, high spirited horse in a contemporary, silhouetted form.
According to Jenne Rayburn, “The Chinese believe the animal ruling one's birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny. The saying is: ‘This animal hides in your heart.’” Each piece is crafted from thin metal then hammered for texture and strength. This beautiful jewelry is easy to wear, lightweight and durable.
According to Chinese astrology, horses are the most energetic of the 12 zodiacs. Legend has it that inception of the Chinese zodiac signs began when Buddha called on all the animals to bid him farewell before his departure from the Earth. However, only twelve animals arrived at his summoning, so those were given a place of honor in a year being named after each. Each animal brings distinct characteristics to its year. In addition, each animal interacts with an earthly element such as fire, water, metal or wood.
Those born in 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, and now 2014, are born under the sign of the horse. This is the year of the wood horse adding attributes of stability and strength to those born in this year. Horse people tend to be smart, sophisticated and talented. They pride themselves on being independent and do not like to be restrained. On the negative side, they tend to be impatient, rarely take advice from others and often have bouts of bad temper.
We are leaving the year 2013, which was the year of the intelligent, intuitive, and elegant snake. The Chinese New Year always begins on the second new moon after winter solstice. Contact http://www.jennerayburn.com for jewelry representing all of the zodiac symbols.
