"Mehndi Lotus"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.

I hand made the pendant and embellished it with a gemstone Turquoise Cabochon and Carnelian
stone beads.
I hand painted the lotus 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.
