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."

Collectible Debated about making this purchase for a long time but decided to make "the leap of faith" pendant is beautiful. Enjoy all of the descriptions for grasshoppers which were provided - "always moves forward not backwards or sideways" "dances to their own music" and of course "leap of faith". Was concerned it was going to be too large, but it is perfect. Definitely a conversation starter with strangers, not a great item for introverts because you are going to get lots of questions or comments. Packaging for me was beautiful - came in a BB box with a pouch. Major investment piece for me, especially since it is a novelty purchase but well worth it 04-27-14
Can't Help But Love This Piece Well, you can't say it's not unique...if you are unique you will probably love this enhancer as much as I do. I have even worn it with pearls! I have the ring as well...I call them Harry and Hedda Hopper( they are like family). Seriously, I have grown very attached to them ,as have others. They are like characters and are adorably lovely. 04-21-14
Not as nice as it looks on TV This enhancer is definitely not a $400.00 item. Maybe $200.00 because of the intricate silver work. The stones, while pretty, are not high dollar stones. I sent it back because I felt it was way over priced. 03-27-14
I Finally Got a Hopper! I have thought about ordering this grasshopper enhancer for 18 months. After Barbara's most recent on-air presentation of the enhancer, I finally ordered and received it! What a intricate, elaborate, beautiful piece of art. I am so happy to own this "Leap of Faith" hopper. I wish I could afford one of everything that Barbara designs! 02-12-14
FABULOUS! I was not familiar with Barbara Bixby but caught the presentation recently and decided to take a chance with this little guy. I was not sure if the value would be there as the parts separately are not really valuable, silver, dab of gold etc.....it's what was done with these components that make the value truly an art piece! Now that I have this Bixby piece as well as her necklace to hang it on I am sure I will not hesitate to purchase more items, in fact I am taking a chance on the snake bangle also pricey but if the ARTIST element is present as it is in this grasshopper I am sure it will be a keeper as well! My Granddaughter is so captivated by this guy she has already called it as her own when I tire of it, she is 5 with great taste! LOL 02-11-14
Best Grasshopper Ever!!! Just got this little green guy today for an early Valentine's Day present from my husband and love it. What a striking enhancer. Bold and beautiful. My daughters were here when I opened the package and can't wait to borrow it. Looks great on the BB textured link necklace. I highly recommend this piece. Pricey but worth it!! 02-08-14
LOVE HIM Love this as I do the ring. I got 3 more items as well all 5 star. Mine came beautifully boxed in her box and had a romance card as well don't know what happened to the other person that got this. By the way , you are paying for her ART. If you can find this fine of art for fifty dollars please tell me where lol. 02-06-14
Most Magnificent Grasshopper In My Garden I could hardly wait to get this grasshopper. Every time I wear him, I get so many compliments, I find it difficult to do whatever it is I set out to do. I even had a sweet little lady offer to buy it from me right there in the mall. Can you imagine?!? I have many grasshoppers in my garden, but none compare to the beauty of this gem! I'm honored to own such an amazing piece!!! 01-13-14
Best ever Purchase I can only say this peice from Barbara is the most enduring peice of jewelry that I own. It speaks to me each time I wear it. Not only from what I can see but the way it feels when I touch the grasshopper.There is something magical about this creation and I adore and love it. I hesitate to wear it sometines because it draws attention.. I truely have people come up to me and grab it while it is on my neck. They always apologize but want to know all about it and where they can find this peice of art. Thank you Barbara. I also purchased the ring but wear the items separately. TO much activity if I wear them together. P.S. MY GRASSHOPPER GLOWS is there a light in mine / Only kidding but it does appear to be glowing. 11-19-13
The Worst Pendant I cannot believe this designer has the nerve to charge almost $500 including tax and s/h, for this item! I was appalled. I didn't even try it on, it's going back. I wouldn't pay $50 for this at a flea market. There is nothing special here at all, are you kidding me?????? And no designer box or info just a plain qvc box. for this price it should come in a fancy jewelry box. Never again will i purchase anything of hers. What a tremendous waste of money. 11-19-13
Not What I Had Hoped The packaging was a downer! This came in the generic green and white box. Did you run out of the usually beautiful tan boxes with the brocade pouch? As I examined the enhancer, I could see that the gold flower at his throat was a bit off center. I thought long and hard to keep the grasshopper, for he is beautiful, and quite large; but I returned it. I have other beautiful Barbara Bixby pieces that I can wear and enjoy. 09-20-13
Beautiful Grasshopper!! I just received my grasshopper and he is just as beautiful in person as on air. He is larger than I thought he would be and can't wait to wear him. Mine did come in Barbara Bixby's signature pouch and box and I can understand why some are upset over paying this price and getting a generic box. Love this little guy!!! 09-17-13
