Lotus Yoga Earrings, Lavender Fuchsia Pink Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

These gorgeous KAMAL lotus blossom earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the spiritual woman who practices yoga and/or meditates.  The earrings might be on the smaller side but they pack huge meaning and will be beauties that she’ll reach for time and time again. Czech glass lotus beads are featured in the earrings and are combined with small Japanese nugget beads and sterling silver.  A lovely lotus flower design was impressed into slightly rustic, pale lavender purple Czech glass coin beads.  To bring out the beautiful details of the lotus blossom and the rustic small pits and “cracks,” a metallic fuchsia pink Picasso finish was applied which settled into the recessed areas. The lavender purple glass is translucent and positively glows as you can see in the photos of the earrings hanging.  Since the lotus coin beads are two sided, the earrings look fabulous from any angle.  
 
To add an even more rustic feel to the elegant earrings design, two small Japanese glass nugget beads were stacked above the lotus coins.  They were created from a lavender gray opal glass, and because of silver lined inner finish, they glow much like opals do.  Because the beads aren’t perfectly round, they may not hang perfectly straight (as some of the photos show), adding great texture to the earrings.  Adding silver sheen, two small sterling silver disc spacers, separate the opal glass beads and cap the top and bottom of the stack.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the lovely earrings,  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the KAMAL lotus flower earrings were created for the woman who loves to wear meaningful, spiritual artisan jewelry.  “Kamal” is Hindi for “lotus” (कमल)

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 carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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 KAMAL 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!
