Alisha has just completed her wax carving of the Lotus Dream Ear Cuff. Her three dimensional Lotus Flower encircles the edge of the ear, it’s stem gracefully curling down along the ear lobe. The Lotus Dream Ear Cuff will be available in sterling silver and bronze in late June.
The lotus plant rises from the mud blossoming in a burst of color at the waters surface. It has sacred and spiritual significance in many asian and african cultures. In Buddhism It is a sacred flower representing spiritual awakening, enlightenment and purity. The lotus flower is a recurring image in ancient Egyptian art and the capitals of many temple pillars are crowned with carvings of the lotus. I recently traveled to India where we saw this beautiful Bahai Temple inspired by the lotus flower.
