Luck Be A Lion

In Tibet, the snow lion represents fearlessness and victory. Prior to China's presence, the Tibetan lion was used on the flag, as well as this old coin, which has been re-imagined into a stunning pendant by artists Mindy and Grant Searcey. Delicate Tibetan lettering and designs celebrate the culture's traditions. May this pendant bring fearlessness, perseverance and abundance to your life. Handmade in Los Angeles.

Mindy and Grant Searcey

Mindy and Grant Searcey are the husband-wife team behind Searcey Designs, which they founded in 2004. Each has brought their own experiences and outlooks to make their line of jewelry unique and memorable.

Mindy always fancied herself a female Indiana Jones--going so far as to major in anthropology and travel as much as possible. "The treasures and historical relics were fascinating to me," Mindy says. "But to me, the real treasure was to be found in the journey."

After many travels and different jobs, Mindy began making and designing jewelry. She has been doing it for ten years.

Grant has always considered himself an artist. He painted and illustrated professionally before he began designing jewelry in 2004. "Designing jewelry opens up my imagination to a third dimension, allowing me to create an art form that is not limited to a flat surface," he says.

Grant is inspired by organic shapes and natural growth. He strives to make each piece unique and original--so that the wearer can express his or her own individuality.

      My husband gave this to me for my birthday (one of many gifts....he spoils me). I absolutely love it! The chain is beautiful and the pendant, even better! I plan on wearing this as often as possible. It's low-key, yet stylish necklace. Exactly what I wanted!

      Comments about TIBETAN LION NECKLACE:

      I love the sentiment of this necklace, but was disappointed in the length of the chain. When clasped, the short chain that the lion charm dangles from was right at my neck. I would have called this a "choker" rather than "necklace". The lion charm was very unique and pretty, so I was bummed to send it back :/

        I love this necklace and wear it everyday! I purchased it for myself as a reward for accomplishing a goal and this necklace is not only a reminder of that accomplishment but also the meaning behind what the Tibetan tiger represents.
        Great quality and craftsmanship... I always receive compliments on this necklace!

        You will not be disappointed :)

        Comments about TIBETAN LION NECKLACE:

        I loved the detail on this piece but was surprised that the medallion was very thin. I think that I was expecting something with more weight, like a coin, but the thinness makes it a more delicate piece. The chain and the medallion perfectly compliment each other. I love it.
