The lotus is born in muck and mire. From sludgy, slimy waters, this brilliant blossom emerges. Many take these humble beginnings as a profound metaphor for life. We can choose to crawl, never lifting our heads up to the light. Or, we can be like the lotus. We can make the best of a lousy situation, and rise above. Stretch out of our comfort zone, grow, and expand.
In this many petaled flower charm, the lotus becomes a mandala - a visually appealing, symmetrical, geometric form that helps quiet chattering thoughts & nagging anxieties, appeasing the spirit. From its center out to its rim, this lotus mandala's symmetry and beauty is exquisite. It has a nice weight to it as well, making it great for for pendant necklaces. Drop onto a finished chain, and this necklace becomes a great gift for friend who's going through a difficult transition, like a far away move, loss of a loved one, or a career change.
