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 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT! I have ALWAYS loved critters and this one is fabulous! Actually, the back and the sides are pretty amazing! The one I received has a beautiful inner glow and the coloring on the body is "blackened" just like the photo. It is a large piece and might scare some, but not me. This will be one of my favorite enhancers and I look forward to the comments. Just call me Grasshoppah! 06-23-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing, totally amazing. Not much to say except, WOW!! I'm glad I didn't miss out on this grasshopper. I wish that the enhancer was larger, but I can deal with that. 06-14-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretty This grasshopper is lovely but not worth 500$. I don't think it should be more than 300. The doublet is dull. Just couldn't justify the cost once I saw it. 06-02-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too expensive, but love it I love this pendant but it is too expensive. QVC think of us all on a budget. 05-16-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Superb work, just not for me I have coveted this pendant for the longest time and I finally purchased it. I must say that the workmanship is quite remarkable, but in terms of the perceived value, I'm just not that impressed. The color of the grasshopper's body is enhanced when viewed on television versus seeing it in person. If gold was still trending at between $1700-$2200 an ounce I might be able to equate the price versus the tiny amount of 18K gold dabbed at both ends of the body, but it's not. I'm not opposed to spending money on jewelry - this item just wasn't a good buy for me. You may deem otherwise. It is quite unique. 02-03-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by True Artistry This is one of my favorite pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. There is a lot of detail and it is just so interesting. I never fail to get complements when I wear it. Barbara Bixby's jewelry continually surprises, amazes, and delights. 01-31-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEAUTIFUL ART WORK HERE! Large and beautiful. I love this pendant and get lots of compliments when I wear it. 01-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by A REAL SHOW HOPPER ! I MEAN STOP-HER ! This is a piece of work! At first view I thought this was insanely bizarre to wear, I don't like bugs of any kind but after a few revisits....the grasshopper had me hooked !! It is abit pricey but gotta say wore it once to a bridal shower and I felt like some of the attention was about me. IT IS DIFFERENT....and QVC knows how to present it to want it and the women there wanted to know where I got it. NEVER would have bought it for the price....the little bit of gold on it is just that for the asking price. It was a farewell gift from a bunch of co-workers so was a going away gift.Going out for dinner with those girls tomorrow night to show it off and I think it will be a hit again. 10-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love My Little Guy! I had my eye on this piece for a while but since it was at a higher price point it sat on my wish list. That is until my birthday when my mom surprised me with it! Thank you mommy! I love him! This piece is everything I thought it would be and beyond. Gorgeous! It's an investment but so worth it! If you're a BB fan and collector this piece is required ;) 09-05-14
