    A mandala or mandara (meaning circle) is a spiritual symbol in eastern religions representing the universe. This "diagram" is believed to visually chart the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically. These often colorful and detailed wheels serve as a microcosm of the universe. Consider this mandara pendant as a petite embodiment of your world. Designer’s notes: This sweet pendant has the understated beauty of a delicate floating flower. I like to see this necklace gracefully worn layered with other dainty necklaces.
