Handcrafted mini lotus petal shaped sterling silver dangle or drop earrings. The sterling silver has been given a light hammering and gunmetal oxidized (antique patina) and then left intact for a striking one-of-a-kind look. The stones are Lemon Quartz. The stones are teardrop and faceted creating a water pool look. The entire length of these earrings is 2" and about 1" in width and depth. These dainty earrings are great for the office, poolside (don't wear them in the water, just sunbathing). :)
Notes on Stones: Lemon quartz is a lemon-yellow transparent quartz. Lemon quartz is sometimes referred to as 'Oro Verde' and it is often confused with citrine quartz, due to its very similar appearance.
Additional notes: Due to handcrafting each pair of these lovelies are just a little bit different. So please be aware they will not be exactly the same.
About the Lotus Petal: In Buddhist symbolism, the lotus is symbolic of the purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals.
Many of my designs emanate from deep within the earth, creating a connection, deep-rooted, but unattached to outcomes. These earrings leave me with a poem in my heart. - Dawn Middleton
