You will see a lot of bats during the Samain/Halloween season. Long associated with witches and vampires by Europeans, Eastern cultures tend to have a very different view of bats. People in China honor the bat as a symbol of happiness and long life. Five bats in a group together is a five-fold blessing: financial security, longevity, good health, a virtuous life, and a natural death. It’s all about perspective!
Besides the bat pendant, it’s assembled from recycled vintage jewelry pieces and chain. The length is fully adjustable; you can wear it as a choker with a long beaded dangle down your back, or wear it at your breast.
