"I have a long-standing love affair with the lotus. It's considered one of the most important symbols in Eastern art because it represents spiritual enlightenment. I've used my signature 18K gold stylized lotus here, but I'm also introducing a carving inspired by the lotus petal to complement it. This new motif features a hand-brushed finish on sterling silver, creating an elegant look when it mixes with the carving and oxidation."
