I have finally completed my Lotus SLN!
I wanted to share the picture of it still on my Mirrix, showing how I completed 95% of this necklace, while still attached to the loom. It works perfectly for holding my piece, while I add accents. The only thing left to complete, after this was cut, to finish off some warps, (my personal 'warp management' methods) and added the silver edging to the outside edges.
Below are pictures of the necklace, in various views!
I have decided to name this necklace 'Sesen'. Lotus flowers have been influential in cultures across the world from ancient times until today, from ancient Egypt and India to all across Asia. They have been associated with the human soul, gods and goddesses and featured in stories and legends. The meaning of a lotus flower ranges from divine purity and enlightenment, as in Buddhism, wealth, as in Hinduism, to rebirth, as in the ancient Egyptian religion. Many of the ancient meanings are still in use today. Sesen means 'To Wish For More'.
Here is a final posting, showing the back of this necklace. I was very careful to add the petals and not having one thread show on the other side! I also included my initials!
