Custom Wrapped Lotus Necklace

PRODUCT STORY
The Lotus is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols on our planet. It has been adapted by almost every culture.

The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again.

Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.

I've taken my favorite flower and symbol and combined it into a wearable, meaningful piece of art.

Amber Bryce's lotus-inspired piece is a semi-finalist in our Jewelry Design Challenge. Would you wear this sterling silver and genuine semi-precious stone necklace?

I love it; it definitely isn't too busy. Might I suggest that the necklace should have worn...capturing the pictures of bare shoulders and the collar area.

It is difficult to have necklaces that cannot be separated from their chains. In this case, the chain appears pointy and uncomfortable.

I've seen a few comments about this piece (and others here too actually) being too "homemade" looking, and I don't understand that! Isn't this contest ALL HANDMADE items?! Isn't that what we are voting on? I LOVE that you can tell this necklace wasn't made on an assembly line in China, that is part of the beauty of it, just like a Lotus flower, they are EACH special. Just mho though.
