This bar pendant is textured and stamped by hand with the meaningful phrase "no mud, no lotus". A lotus is a symbol of beauty and enlightenment. It grows and blooms above muddy water. One must recognize and accept that life's challenges are all part of the journey to happiness, appreciation and fulfillment.
A teardrop charm is stamped with a lotus and inked. Accent beads are high quality micro faceted Pink Tourmaline, purple Amethyst, Turquoise or navy Lapis gemstones. The pendant and charm are hypoallergenic aluminum to allow for the hammered detail. After the impressions are inked, the front side of the pendant is sealed with a high quality, museum grade wax, then hand polished to protect the ink and prevent scratches. All other metal components are sterling silver. OPTIONS Accent Beads: Pink Tourmaline, Amethyst (purple), Turquoise or Lapis (navy) Length of the no mud no lotus bar: 18, 20, 22, 24 or 26 inches This necklace comes with a free polishing cloth to keep up on normal sterling tarnish. For best care, do NOT shower or swim in your jewelry. All Concetta Designs jewelry is packaged in a gift box and shipped USPS First Class Mail with tracking.
