The Lotus Bud Collection: an ancient Balinese technique

Nagicia has chosen the traditional Balinese “plong” technique to create the Baby Lotus collection, a technique so named for the sound of a delicate hammer stamping out each leaf individually “plong plong plong”. First the motif is carved into the end of a silver pin, and after the hammering onto a thin sheet of silver, is hand applied individually to the base of the jewelry piece. The effect created is one of careful craftsmanship, precise yet individual detail.

The lotus is an unrivaled symbol of creation, spiritual growth, and the divine within each person. Contemplating it brings the seeker closer to the mysteries of the self. reminding us of the potential we all share, the potential to bloom into fullness.

Watch the video to see how an individual 'plong' lotus bud is stamped out.
