The Purple Lotus

About this design:

I thought the lotus flower would make a beautiful bracelet! I knew that I wanted to use the purples, blue and the ochre patinas, however I didn't even realize until I was uploading this and naming it, that the colors were incredibly close to the real thing! My husband said it must have been in the back of my mind somewhere! ;)
