The rise and fall of the great dynasties forms a thread that runs through Chinese history. China can trace her culture back to a blend of small original tribes which have expanded till they became the great country we have today. Chinese society has progressed through five major stages: primitive society, slave society, feudal society, semi-feudal and semi-colonial society, and the founding of the People's Republic of China on October 1st, 1949, China has become a socialist society. Chinaâs ability to evolve and conform to the demands of every new era is what makes it a powerful superpower and something to be revered and respected. With so much relevant history and influence today no matter where we are in the world, China is a part of us as a people of the globe. With this ever progressing, ever present culture of united people I bring you my 3rd collection of Chinese inspired jewelry.

As the emblem of the Emperor and the Imperial command, the legend of the Chinese Dragon permeates the ancient Chinese civilization and shaped their culture until today. Its benevolence signifies greatness, goodness and blessings.
The Chinese Dragon, or Lung , symbolizes power and excellence, valiancy and boldness, heroism and perseverance, nobility and divinity. A dragon overcomes obstacles until success is his. He is energetic, decisive, optimistic, intelligent and ambitious.
Unlike the negative energies associated with Western Dragons, most Eastern Dragons are beautiful, friendly, and wise. They are the angels of the Orient. Instead of being hated, they are loved and worshipped. Temples and shrines have been built to honor them, for they control the rain, rivers, lakes, and seas. Many Chinese cities have pagodas where people used to burn incense and pray to dragons.
