A Note from the Designer

"The Japanese revere the grasshopper's song, believing the moon inspires its music. In China, the grasshopper is a symbol of happiness, good health, good luck, abundance, and virtue. Native Americans consider the grasshopper a harbinger of joyful news. The grasshopper springs us into magical realms and teaches us to see the 'big picture.' The lines of its body are perfect for a three-dimensional sculpture. Green quartz promotes growth and abundance, and I've placed a green-toned mother-of-pearl under Limon® quartz to give it a luminescent glow. The amethyst, a crown chakra stone, is specially carved for the grasshopper's head and is a stone of intuition, spirituality, and mediation."

—Barbara Bixby

Rated 5 out of 5 by Special This piece is spectacular!!! My grasshopper glows from within. The silver work is as good as it gets. I originally purchased his little brother and really liked him it, but wow this piece is fantastic! The silhouette is sexy worn up high or on a long chain. You will love this one. 07-29-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Grasshopper Enhancer I just love my new grasshopper enhancer! It is so striking!!! Thank you! 07-15-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not for the shy person! You can not wear this without being noticed and frequently approached. I own one and came back for a second. My all time favorite enhancer. You really have to get this home to fully appreciate the artistry, the colors and the size! MAGNIFICENT! 07-11-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unusual, Beautiful, and Substantial! I have had my eye on this piece and with a huge savings I purchased it at clearence. It must have been a return because it was tarnished and the Limone was dirty. The romance card was missing from the box too. They sold out so I couldn't exchange it. I cleaned it up and looks fine. I am a Master Gardener so this reflects my garden friends. I am not into the Eastern Religious symbolism Barbara is, but her execution and quality of art is so beautiful. That's why I buy her things. 05-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect gift! I bought this for my daughter's 50th Birthday. I had hoped that Barbara Bixby 's description/meaning of the stones and the grasshopper would be included. Nevertheless, the grasshopper is stunningly beautiful! 05-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Lovely Leap Of Faith! I waited for this grasshopper to go on sale for years. I ordered it and love it as much as I thought I would. Thank you! 04-30-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW!!! I have wanted this enhancer for a long time, and finally decided to order it during the 6 easy pay/Q card event last week. I just received it yesterday and it is STUNNING!! The green/yellow body of the grasshopper does actually have a soft glow, and it is beautiful. The amethyst head is exquisitely carved, and the over all silver workmanship is nothing short of stunning! I purchased a 20 inch silver snake chain to wear it on,and it's perfect. The size of the grasshopper is big and bold and every aspect is just so well crafted and lovely. I cannot say enough good things about it! I know it's an investment, but I plan on wearing it everyday, everywhere and with everything! 04-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING!!! Unique, Symbolic and GORGEOUS art!!! The craftsmanship, the gemstone quality, the materials used and the spectacular design in this pendant is remarkable. The ethereal green mother of pearl, crowned with the sparkle of faceted crystal and the beautifully carved amethyst, is enchanting. This glorious enhancer has an elegance about it, and the graceful flow of design adds to the magic, captivating the onlooker. For those of us who love the gentle, friendly grasshopper, this is a must have. They remind us of the delicate balance of nature and, perhaps, the passion to leap forward and do good when the moment presents itself. This wonderful pendant a real treasure. 11-10-15
