It is hand-carved into a bamboo stalk shape.
Bamboo plays an important role in traditional Chinese culture. It is even regarded as a behavior model of the gentleman. As bamboo has features such as uprightness, tenacity, and modesty, people endow bamboo with integrity, elegance, and plainness, though it is not physically strong.
As a spiritual symbol, bamboo is highly appreciated by scholars. Countless poems praising bamboo written by ancient Chinese scholars are actually metaphorically about people who exhibited these characteristics.
A poem written by one of the most famous scholar Su Shi(1036-1101) in Chinese Song Dynasty says,
'Better having no meat in eating.
Than having no bamboos in living.
No meat -- one becomes thin, one will find;
No bamboos -- one can ne'er be refined. '
The carving is inspired by nature.
The craftsmanship is superb with very vivd details. The proportion between lines and surface in the carving are operated in a perfect way.
Both the amber and green jade beads are finished with matt-polishing.
The shimmer of this bracelet will develop with time after being used. The more you wear it, the more beautiful it will become. It is charming and personal.
