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

Barbara Bixby Sterling & 18K Pave' Gemstone Grasshopper Charm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I have to agree with some of the other reviews. It does make for a cute necklace. However, the green stones have hardly any sparkle to them, and the purple amethyst is dull. I have had mine for a while now and was sad when I had seen that one of the grasshoppers legs broke off. I figured I would spend the extra money and get a nice Barbara Bixby piece. Not worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love With This Grasshopper! Barbara, you really know your craft! The detail and attention that went into designing this grasshopper is impressive. I can't keep my eyes off of it. It's a perfect size to put on a necklace. Thank you Barbara and QVC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous piece of ART I have been wanting this for a very long time, finally in May of this year decided to buy it. It is gorgeous, the detailing on it is exquisite, worth every penny - a heirloom piece. I am sure the bigger one has more presence but there are some of us who like the petite version and it suits my budget. I am happy I got it because I have coveted this for a long time. I love Barbara Bixby designs they are mostly too pricey so I am happy when I can afford something from her designs, I do have a few small pieces from her and this grasshopper does wonders for my collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Me Like most other reviewers I watched this Grasshopper Charm for quite a while before I took the plunge and bought it. I was disappointed with it right out of the box. The gems on this one have no sparkle at all, especially the amethyst. Sadly, it just looks dull. On the plus side, even tho it is classified as a charm, it is large enough to wear as a necklace. Just wish it had some sparkle to it to match the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful! I have been watching this charm for quite a long time. Finally, I justified I deserved to buy it on easy pay. It is hands down one of the most beautiful additions to my jewelry! In my opinion, it is much, much larger than a "charm" and it just hangs perfectly on my chains -- shorter or longer. I was delighted when I opened the box. So much prettier in person. This piece is well worth the investment and easy pay is making it mine! Absolutely LOVE it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BYE BYE GRASSHOPPER Beautiful design but it just did not work with my existing jewelry. I would have prefer this piece to be bigger. I should have order the enhancer. The bail could not glide over any of my silver necklaces nor did it fit my leather necklace. I was so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful - Just buy it. Love this, I love all BB but I love the insect and skull motif, please bring back more I would like to see a couple of bee and more skull. I love the flower and nature items and will purchase if available. This is a lovely piece and would highly recommend it. Stone presence is vibrant and well made for size, not to big not to small - just right. BB pieces are of heirloom quality so worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I have numerous pieces from this designer.......save your money and get the larger grasshopper. The smaller version is so watered down..... Not worth the price..... Returned.
