Hello! Today I want to share with you how I created my collection of jewellery and accessories with amazing Lotus Flowers

A bit of history

The flower always looks so clean and pure against the background of the dirty pond.

LotusFlowers-03Because of this the lotus flower has come to be associated with purity and beauty in the religions of Buddhism and Hinduism respectively; the ancient Egyptians scholars observed that in the night-time the lotus closed its flowers and sank into the water, and came up with a different association with the flower related to rebirth and the Sun; in actual fact the Lotus slowly emerges from a pond over a three day period and then blooms in the morning until mid-afternoon.

It can therefore be assumed that the lotus flower meaning is different between cultures, though in fact they share many similarities. (More there www.lotusflowermeaning.net)

That such a wonderful flower! And I really wanted to try to make this flower from polymer clay – a small copy of the big realistic flower.

Petals of Lotus Flower

First I decided to make handmade mold imprint real petals, but the lotus flower is quite large, so the mold was not suitable for my ideas. So, I decided make that a little bit easier. There is what I got – the first flower and first lotus seed pods.

 

Hair Clip – The 1st Try

So I decided to create a hair clip with petals I made before. So there is a result:

Second Try

Then I made a few more lotus flowers. Each next flower became better and better that previous one. A few days later the inspiration came to me and I created jewellery with lotus flowers: rings, hair clips & brooches.

So, these are results of jewellery with the Lotus flowers.
