A *NEW* botanical mandala infused with uplifting, vibrant and harmonious energy of nature. 🌿
I wanted to visually tell the story of my Sensuous Bali collection to complement my botanical Bali rings.
I've evolved my artistic style and incorporated gold metal effects, flower symbolism and gemstones into this one. It gives it more depths and refers to my love for gemstones and Balinese decorate arts.
Creating mandalas has an enjoyable calming, focusing effect on my mind, heart and body.
I became interested in the conceptual idea of mandalas when I was looking for a creative design idea that visually communicates the art of living in balance inspired by the natural beauty of Balinese culture.
“Mandala” means “circle or wholeness” and is a spiritual journey within in Hindu Sanskrit. Based on this idea, I designed a series of Bali-inspired botanical mandalas encapsulating the nourishing energy and colours of nature to feel harmony and joy within.
Drawing this botanical mandala felt so relaxing and infused calm and joy in my creative process.
It does require some initial design thinking:
🌱 A thoughtful composition that feels balanced and harmonious between all elements
🌱 Defining a colour palette inspired by the tropical colours seen in Bali
🌱 Thoughfully selecting and drawing exotic plants and flowers that have a powerful symbolic meaning
🌱 Adding some cabochon citrines and blue topaz to refer to my love for meaningful gemstones
This mandala tells the story of my handcarved botanical BALI rings.
