About this Jewelry

These earrings are made from a pair of Red Dragon Mahjong game tiles. These Red Dragon tiles are the Imperial Dragon versions. The Kanji character on the tile specifically means Imperial Dragon.

The Red Dragon in traditional Chinese represents luck and wealth. The Red Dragon ushers in the Chinese new year, and 2022 is the year of the dragon!

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.
