Handcrafted lotus petal shaped sterling silver dangle or drop earrings. The sterling silver has been given a light hammering giving it a striking one-of-a-kind look. The stones are Chalcedony, which is seafoam in color. The stones are teardrop - Okra shaped and faceted creating a water pool look. The entire length of these earrings is 2.5" 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). :)
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.
Notes on Stones: Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine intergrowths of quartz and moganite. These are both silica minerals, but they differ in that quartz has a trigonal crystal structure, while moganite is monoclinic.

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
