Much of Asian culture is based on symbolism. In ancient China and Japan, they believed these symbols also represented different forms of energy that resonated with their symbols. This tradition continues today whereby we often give tokens and gifts to friends and family in hopes to bring them good fortune and positive energy. My designs incorporate many traditional Asian symbols with a modern twist. Many will be interested to know the meaning behind the symbols and will appreciate your intentions for them. They make wonderful gifts!
