Description

Celebrate the exceptional style of Thai jeweler Lotus Arts de Vivre, beloved the world over for its daring, nature-inspired pieces, with Unexpected Creations. Journey into a realm of finely wrought bracelets, necklaces, and rings whose magnificent details are inspired by Asian folklore and culture. Lotus’s artisans pay homage not only to the brand’s Thai heritage, but also to Indian moguls, Indonesian rulers, and Chinese emperors. Seamlessly melding precious metals and jewels with organic materials such as ebony, seeds, nuts, seashells, bamboo, scarab wings, and ostrich eggs, these pieces are one of a kind, bringing to life mythical beasts and ancient tales. Lotus also goes beyond jewelry, creating all aspects of an elegant lifestyle, including home decor, travel accessories, furniture, and paintings. The stunning original photography in this volume will whisk readers away to another time.
