Cheri's Signature

Lotus blossoms are a symbol of purity because they bloom out of murky and muddy waters looking pristine and fresh. The earthy colors of the Dakota Stones gemstone beads in this bracelet look like muddled waters surrounding the shining TierraCast lotus bead at the center of the design.
