Little over a week ago, I was reading Miss FickleMedia's blog. No, I didn't leave a comment but I left one in my head which was me excitedly yelling -
I HAVE TO HAVE THAT LOTUS PENDANT!!
I promptly went over to EB Bead and Metal Works and bought it. I love the deep plum and yellow color. How many times have you heard me expound on the much maligned color yellow?
Don't you smile when you see forsythia in the spring? A little purple helps it pop. But the deep pinot noir/ plummy color of the lotus pendant is suited to a winter palette.
Once I paid for the pendant, it was sent promptly and I couldn't wait to make it into a piece of personal jewelry. I put together a quick and easy necklace where I added just a bit of my other favorite color, green by using my double dips.
I particularly like adding a bit of green because it's associated with the heart chakra. Some associations with the heart chakra according to about.com are:
# Color - green, pink
# Sanskrit Name - anahata
# Physical Location - center of chest
# Purposes - emotional empowerment
# Spiritual Lesson - forgiveness, unconditional love, letting go, trust, compassion
Makes you see green in a different light doesn't it?
I have a lovely new piece of art jewelry full of personal meaning - thanks to Miss FickleMedia.
Are you wearing a piece of jewelry thanks to someone?
