Lotus Yoga Dangle Earrings, Turquoise Handmade Meditation Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The exquisite LOTOS handmade earrings are filled with a serene, vintage look.  Jewelry for the woman who practices yoga and / or meditates, the beauties feature intricate, faux vintage lotus flower dangles, genuine turquoise, copper and sterling silver.  The eye catching lotus flower dangles look like they were upcycled from old tea or cookie tins -  but they only mimic rustic vintage tins.  The artisan dangles were individually hand cut into a round shape from modern copper sheeting, filed and sanded.  A permanent metal transfer was applied for the faux look and then the charms were sealed for many years of wearing fun.  A dark yellow lotus flower with five petals is perfectly highlighted against a marbled pale yellow background.  Each petal has three green dots which represents the Buddhist symbol “unalome,” the path to true enlightenment.  Under the petals is a teal green sepal with leaf ends that spiral, another meaningful symbol for the journey of life.  The back of each dangle is smooth, shiny copper which will gradually gain a patina over time.  Because the charms are made from copper sheeting, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
Because the pattern of the lotus flowers is so intricate and beautiful, the rest of the earrings design is purposely simple.  Two genuine turquoise rounds are stacked above the dangles, separated by a small copper bead.  The color of the turquoise leans more towards green, perfectly complementing the lotus’ sepal.  Everything was wire wrapped on copper wire and connected to sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the LOTOS earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves to wear one of a kind, artisan jewelry that is full of deep symbolism.  “Lotos” is another less common spelling of “lotus.”  
***  Meaning of the lotus: a symbol of spiritual growth and the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to spiritual enlightenment, the lotus grows through dark, muddy waters into the light and then transforms into a beautiful flower. The lotus maintains its peace, beauty and purity through all obstacles it faces.

The lotus symbolizes enlightenment, purity and rebirth in many cultures and religions.  Turquoise is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  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 a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The LOTOS handmade yoga 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!
