Most people don't know the lotus is an incredible flower. She literally blooms in the murkiest and unhealthy of waters. Bringing beauty to it's ostensibly dark and clotted environment. I added the pink sapphire because she generates feelings of love, forgiveness, acceptance and release. This gentle stone provides strength in difficult situations.
To combine the two is like a defining self statement. I can rise from anything, I can be be great, can be worthy of love and happiness. I can love me and in doing so take on the world.
