|Polymer Clay and Sterling Silver Pendant
A beautiful lotus pendant created from polymer clay.
Throughout many cultures over time, the Lotus has been a
powerful image and a spiritual symbol. In Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian
religions, the lotus is considered a sacred flower.
Among it's many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of
"spontaneous" generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual
development and creation itself.
The Hamsa amulet is popular throughout North Africa, and commonly
used in jewelry and wall hangings. The Hand (Khamsa), particularly the
open right hand, is a sign of protection that also represents blessings,
power, and strength, and is seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye.
It is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate
Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra. Christians call it the hand of Mary,
for the mother of Jesus. Following its incorporation into Jewish tradition
via its widespread use in the Islamic world, it was also renamed the hand
of Miriam for Miriam, sister of Moses.
I hand made the pendant and embellished it with a gemstone Dyed Jade Cabochon
and Turquoise and Coral stone beads.
I hand painted the Lotus and Hamsa hand design in vibrant colors and sealed it with
a clear coat for a sparkling shine. (The back side is also painted with an Ohm symbol)
In Hindu philosophy, the vibration created when saying the word Ohm symbolizes the
vibration of the universe.
Sterling silver tassels are filled with genuine gemstones including: Magnesite in a
rainbow of colors, Green Aventurine, Lapis, and glass beads. Sterling and Bali silver
bail, beads, spacers and wire working. Bells are steel.

Entire pendant measures 4 and 1/2 inches in length, from top of bail to end of tassels.
Can be worn on ribbon or chain as shown.
