The lotus can simply be a beautiful flower element, for creating elegant nature-inspired jewelry, or can be seen as a symbol of something deeper. The lotus flower has roots in the muck and mud, but rises far above, and when it reaches the sunlight, it blooms one pristine, unmuddied petal at a time. A lotus can signify purity, personal growth, and faith. The fully-bloomed lotus is a symbol of the strength and beauty that we achieve as human beings as we overcome the obstacles (mud) in our life. Here you'll find lotus charms by Nina Designs and TierraCast, as well as lotus beads, buttons, earring posts, ceramic lotus disk pendants, and even magnetic clasps with a lotus design on both sides.
