Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 23: Broken

Photo-a-Day - October 2012 - Day 23:  Broken
This little guy found me many years ago at an antique store.  I know almost nothing about the piece except that the man is jade, the rolo loops are, I believe, jadite as are the round green beads.  I don't know what the red beads are. 

I rarely wear this piece as the beads are very heavy.  Sadly, one of his feet is broken and the piece between his shoulder and head on the left (as you see it) broke.  I now have both chains of beads fastened on the right side. 

No matter that it's not perfect; I still love it.
