At the heart of embracing balance in life is the loving lotus flower, found all over Asia and Australia in ponds and lakes. It has a rare beauty that can take your breath away. It is a symbol for believers that what can grow strong and exquisite above the muddy waters of a still pond is a testament to the power of beauty and strength. Our fine silver lotus button is handmade by the Hill Tribe of Thailand. Each button will vary; in some shipments they are closer to 15mm wide and others can be just 13mm. Thanks for your understanding.
