About this Jewelry

These earrings are made from a pair of 1 Dot Mahjong game tiles. The number one Dot tile features a single tóng. A tóng is a Chinese coin that's round with a square hole in the middle. These are also referred to as luck coins.

The Dot suit in Mahjong represents luck and wealth.

Each tile is about 1 inch tall, .75 inches wide, and .4 inches deep. The earring fish hooks are sterling silver. The earrings come in a bag with an information card. The last picture shows the front and back of the card in the bag.

About Mahjong Art by ChipScapes

Mahjong Art is made by ChipScape artist Steve Emery. Inspired by the complexity, beauty, and symbology of the Chinese game of Mahjong, Steve began exploring the artistic expression of this "Game of a Thousand Intelligences."

Chinese Majong game tiles are the focus of Steve's jewelry. Chinese artisans made these Mahjong tiles over a hundred years ago. The faces are carved from cow bone and dovetailed into bamboo backs. The pictures and characters were chiseled into the faces and hand-painted.
