Lotus Blossom Yoga Necklace, Bronze Chalcedony Garnet Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Exquisite jewelry for the yoga enthusiast - or for anyone who enjoys wearing beautiful jewelry - the ENLIGHTENMENT handmade necklace is filled with great spiritual symbolism.  Created with an artisan made, solid bronze lotus blossom pendant, green chalcedony, red garnet and Swarovski crystals, the necklace will definitely make an inspirational statement each and every time it is worn.  The one of a kind necklace features an exquisite, artisan handmade bronze lotus blossom pendant, the flower symbolising enlightenment, purity and rebirth in many cultures and religions. Just look at the amazing detail of the oval pendant - each petal of the lotus is slightly raised against the background adding wonderful texture to the design!   And as a special perk, a glittering cubic zirconia was added to the lotus design to represent the soul star chakra. The pendant is connected to the main body of the necklace with a built in tube bail, also made from bronze (see photo # 9).
Green chalcedony, a gemstone that is believed to help strengthen the soul, was used to perfectly complement the lotus blossom pendant.  The chalcedony has a translucent radiant quality to it, with various shades of pale minty green. The shape of the gemstones is mostly a smooth, oval nugget.  Since they are nuggets, they are not exactly the same size and shape. Three sparkling aurora borealis finish clear Swarovski crystals are found on each side of the necklace, again to represent the soul star chakra.  To add lovely color and since red garnet is said to bring peaceful energy, a single rich garnet round separates the green chalcedony along with glowing copper bicones. A unique spiral rope design copper toggle clasp set finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catheirne of Shadow Dog Designs, the ENLIGHTENMENT lotus pendant necklace will make a meaningful gift for the woman who practices yoga, who meditates or just enjoys wearing meaningful, elegant artisan created jewelry.

Symbolism of the lotus:
The padma (Nelumbo nucifera, the sacred lotus) is an aquatic plant, often growing in muddy water, that plays a central role in many religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, and, most recently, Baha’i.  Because the lotus rises from muddy waters and blooms as a brilliantly pure, gorgeous flower, it is thought of as a symbol of human consciousness on the path to spiritual enlightenment. In Buddhism, the lotus is symbolic of a person’s path through life.  The lotus seeds represent the early stages of the karmic cycle. During the next stage, the bud travels through the muddy water emerging on the surface into light - this represents following the path of spirituality, leaving attachments behind. Finally when lotus blossoms, a person has become fully awakened and has achieved nirvana.

The lotus symbolizes enlightenment, purity and rebirth in many cultures and religions.  Green Chalcedony is a gemstone known for strengthening the soul; it also is said to give the wearer courage.  Red Garnet is worn to bring peaceful energy; it symbolizes faith, courage, truth and compassion. Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  The energy of the Star Soul Chakra encourages us to let go of old attitudes that may otherwise have held us back in our current life. Bronze is said to bring great calmness and deep meaningful thoughts, leading to a far greater insight into life’s problems.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The ENLIGHTENMENT lotus pendant and gemstone necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
