Lotus Flower Yoga Necklace, Purple Fire Agate Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

With a symbol of enlightenment, purity and rebirth, the meaningful CALM handmade lotus flower pendant necklace is perfect for the woman who practices yoga, mediates or loves to wear stylish jewelry.  The one of a kind necklace features a beautiful, artisan made lotus blossom ceramic pendant with a medium purple glaze. An original design by the artist, the lotus is raised for wonderful, eye catching texture.  The back of the pendant is unglazed so it can be used as an aromatherapy diffuser - just add a drop or two of essential oil to the back and the scent will be released for hours.
 
To brilliantly highlight the pendant, faceted purple fire agate rounds were used, each grouping of agate separated by lead free, high quality pewter hogan beads with engraved spirals.  The color of the purple agate naturally shades from dark purple to lavender to brown to white, some beads translucent and some beads opaque. The facets add wonderfully subtle sparkle to the necklace.   A sleek sterling silver hook clasp finishes the necklace at the back. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique CALM lotus flower necklace was created for the womn who loves to wear meaningful 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 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.   Fire Agate is a stone of protection, courage and strength. Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

 

The CALM one of a kind 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!
