Featured Color Palette:
Hematite & White

Ancient Egypt was rich in symbolism. Their hieroglyphic script and art expressed much about their culture, people and ideas. This piece was inspired by the many depictions of lotuses found in their architecture, jewelry and royal regalia.

There are two sizes of lotuses to create a balance in the composition of the necklace. Chevron chain stitch with an increase develops the flared shape of the lotuses and netting creates the petals. The embellished bale that holds the lotuses on the chain is created using peyote stitch. The beads that run the entire length of the chain are embellished with details on the edges. The clasp is tucked inside a lotus.
