Lotus Flower Earrings, Mint Green Sea Glass Handmade Yoga Jewelry Gift

Item Description

These beautiful NOBLE LOTUS flower earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the spiritual woman who practices yoga and / or meditates.  Lotus blossoms symbolize enlightenment, purity and rebirth in many cultures and religions, so these one of a kind beauties will be ones she’ll reach for time and time again.  Czech glass lotus beads are featured in the handmade earrings and are combined with glittering Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver.  A lovely multi-petalled lotus flower design was impressed into minty green and clear glass coin beads.  The translucent glass was given a matte finish for a glowing sea glass look.  To bring out the beautiful details of the lotus blossom and the rustic small pits and “cracks,” a metallic bronze Picasso finish was applied which settled into the recessed areas. Because the lotus beads are made in small batches, each bead side is similar but also a bit different as you can see in the photos.  Since the lotus coin beads are two sided, the yoga earrings look fabulous from any angle.  
To add an even more beauty to the elegant earring design, a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was added to the top of each lotus bead, separated by a small copper disc spacer.  The color of the crystals is called “peridot,” a peaceful shade of green evoking the spirit of nature.  The sparkle is absolutely amazing, flashing at even the smallest movement of the earrings.  All of the components used to make the earrings were strung on handmade (by me) copper headpins with a hand hammered loop at the bottom.  The earrings are finished with sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the NOBLE LOTUS blossom will be a much loved gift for the woman who meditates, practices yoga and just loves to wear meaningful, one of a kind jewelry designs!

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 seed stage represents the early stage 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.   Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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 NOBLE LOTUS blossom earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
