Lotus Ornament

June 2014
Sterling silver

Upon the wedding of two of my friends, I wanted to make something special as a gift. Their wedding invitations featured a beautiful organic graphical design, the main detail of which was an intricate boteh-like lotus. I used the central motif to make this Christmas ornament for them—my hope is that when they trim their tree every December, they'll be reminded of the intense joy they felt on their wedding day.
