No Mud, No Lotus Necklace by Patsy Kolesar

When I was in Holland at my jewelry artists residency last spring there was a small pond in our backyard. It was muddy, murky, filled with gross bugs and green slime.  I didn't pay too much attention to it, it hadn't been cared for for some time. Until perfect pink lotus flowers started to blossom in it. It captivated me.  I had new respect for the murky pond, new wonder and fascination.  I would sit in front of it and notice how the lotus flowers opened and closed.  I would notice how the bugs interacted with the flowers, I would notice how the plant life was so alive in the mud.......
