Lotus Earrings are created with an inverted open lotus link suspending lustrous green malachite beads above lotus petal charms. The earwires are gold filled hooks.
These earrings are similar to an unalome (a symbolic Buddhist spiritual path). The lotus flower is the iconic symbol for beauty and purity. Inverted it can mean the opposite - perhaps even the dark side of yourself. To accomplish inner beauty and purity, multiple paths to enlightenment (the chains) pass through malachite beads (stones of transformation) and finally descending into the teardrop charms emblazoned with a lotus flower (beauty and purity).
Earring Length is measured from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the lowest bead or component.
