Another delightful vacation for my dear friend Tracy. Although she travels around the globe working her bad ass photography she always take time to relax. But she never forgetting her camera. Here she sent me some pics of her own Fevi Reyes Sparkling Lotus Ring in Oregon. I love how nice the texture and the color of the surroundings make the piece look even more amazing. I also love that she send me pictures.
Fevi Facts:
Lotus flowers are amazing and have strong symbolic ties to many Asian religions especially throughout India. The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the waters surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.

Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. The meaning varies slightly between the two religions of course but essentially both religious traditions place importance on the lotus flower.
