I started doing yoga several years ago at the Sussex Family YMCA in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I had a membership there already so I decided it would be a good place to enroll in a yoga class. I have had a number of different, and all excellent yoga instructors, but Iris has been my instructor the longest. Iris is close to my age so it gives me hope that someday I will be able to do most everything she can. Also, most of the folks in the class are close to my age-old. It is a level 2 sometimes, level 3 class. I can do many more posses now than when I started. Progress is slow, but steady. I have added some yoga jewelry section to my Etsy store because I love yoga and I know others who do. It also gives me an opportunity to research more about some of the symbols in yoga like the lotus flower.

I love the lotus flower because it is one of the most delicate and beautiful flowers. Although lotus grows in muddy water, it grows beautiful and brings a smile on anyone's face who sees it. The lotus has long been associated with purity, rebirth and beauty. The purple lotus is the mystic lotus.
I created these lotus earrings for the AJE Earring Challenge. I was drawn to the lotus components because I love yoga and purple. These are perfect lotus flower earrings for someone with those loves! The lavender lotus is suspended from a lovely purple bead and gold earwires. The gold earwires bring out the gold color that outlines the lotus. This lotus is hand painted polymer clay by Jewelry by Jeannie.

These earrings are inspired by nature. They remind me of a walk in the woods.
