This bead features a classic combination of the plant and animal world. On one side it shows the Dragonfly, symbol of rebirth and transformation. On the other, there is a carved Lotus, an amazing water plant revered the world over for its beauty and longevity.
Dragonflies represented transformation, moving through several different stages in their development. They literally change their shape when they come to adulthood and become creatures of flight.
The Lotus is a symbol of a higher spiritual purpose. It rises up through the murky water to the bright surface. Their multitude of petals and their tenacity in growth that have come to represent enlightenment and longevity.
Together, the Dragonfly and the Lotus symbolizes the ability we have to transcend the place we may start from so that we may to come to rest where we are better suited.
