The lotus flower grows in dark, murky water, anchored strongly in the mud, yet rises to meet the light as a beautiful bloom. The tassel of the Bloom Necklace represents a lotus blossom, while the gemstone strands represent the flower's strong roots.

May we exist like the lotus....at ease in muddy water.
