Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus Preview & Launch

This charm bracelet blog brings a preview of a special edition version of the Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus and alerts readers to it’s launch.

Those of you who follow Palace of Amber closely will undoubtedly be aware of the new Enchanted Lotus design. There is beautiful inspiration behind this bead which I’ll explain shortly. There are also multiple versions of the design too.

The sapphire version is available in limited quantities immediately from Great Lakes Boutique and you can find the link directly below. It’s retailing at $80.

The Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus is an intricately detailed barrel shaped silver and is 2cms in length. The inspiration for this bead came from the beauty of the lotus flower but more specifically it’s unwavering ability to grow and flourish in the most hostile of environments. It’s not uncommon to see single lots flowers growing from vast areas of mud and dirt. Palace of Amber wanted to convey this beautiful message that no matter how grim things may seem, we can still grow and blossom as individuals.

There are four versions of the Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus, each limited to sixty pieces. One version has two small rubies and is exclusive to Taiwan. The second uses garnets and will be available globally. The third features two sapphires and is exclusive to Great Lakes Boutique. (This is the version pictured here and launching today.) We were actually so impressed with the bead and the inspiration behind it that we then commissioned a fourth version with emeralds. That will also be exclusive to Great Lakes and launch probably for January 2019. Each bead comes with a certificate of authenticity and the individual edition number written on the card.

Today we’re proudly launching the sapphire version which is so beautiful as a focal for your winter season bracelets. Please note that the chain used in these images is Trollbeads.

Obviously I’m more a bangle wearer so I’ve been styling the Enchanted Lotus with the Henhousebeads Brittany glass. Brittany is a really unusual shade of blue, very evocative of threatening winter sky. Our most recent stock of Brittany has a lovely metallic finish to it so if you’re tempted by these beads you can find them here.

Lastly to complete the look I added my Ohm Beads Touch of Grey bracelet.

Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus Summary

I’m not a huge fan of the holidays and yet adore the winter season. I find such beauty and inspiration in it. With that in mind I’m focusing more on winter inspired designs and less on festive pieces and as such find myself drawn to cooler colours evocative of the weather. This mix of blue and grey is so beautiful and the sapphire in the Enchanted Lotus adds a real chill to the design.

It’s also no secret that I do like larger silver beads, especially the barrel shapes. This is partly due to the style perspective and the fact the detail can show much better when an artist isn’t trying to squish it into an area of less than 1cm. The barrel shapes though are generally incredibly comfortable to wear and I find this so important.

For those of you attending our Winter Wonderland Event, we have held stock to ensure you can see the bead in person there.

If you share my love of the winter season perhaps more than the actual holidays, we have something very very special to share with you over the next week.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Palace of Amber Enchanted Lotus? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I love it! I love the barrel shape and design. Interesting to see the inset sapphires. The gemstones make it really different.

    I ordered the sapphire bead, but would love to swap for the garnet bead. Please contact me if you are interested.

    Thanks
