In these one-of-a-kind pieces, Ana turns her eye to the symbolism embodied by the pink and blue lotus flowers, prominent in Buddhism and other traditions. Ana has chosen pink sapphires and aquamarines to depict their respective meanings.
The aquamarines carry the spirit of freedom and wisdom associated with the blue lotus flower. And the pink sapphires connect us to purity, love and the sacred process of rebirth that are associated with the pink lotus flower.
The combination of mixed metals between the 18ct gold and oxidised silver conveys a sense of regal antiquity.
"I’m fascinated by the lotus flower's natural daily cycle, they emerge slowly from muddy waters and open all through the morning, then close their petals in the late afternoon. Despite beginning in muddy waters, the lotus flower remains pure and beautiful."
“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so, I, born in the world, raised in the world, having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world.”
