This bead features two raised, ribbed edges, and a smooth central surface. The pattern is reminiscent of a fence line, or the borders on the edge of fields. It helps us contain and protect our energies. Although the regular lines act as a form of protection, they are also open in the spaces between, so that you have the potential to move past your boundaries if you choose.
The circular, repeating pattern of lines along the side rims of this bead also represents order and regularity. Clear parameters are a necessary component of centering. When you do not feel hemmed in, but are able to maintain an open framework, you can give yourself the freedom to navigate borders.
The measurements of this bead are 1/4" W x 3/8" H x 3/8" D. It’s internal diameter is 5mm, so it fits on to any neck chain, slide bracelet chain, leather collar, bracelet or cord with a diameter of 4mm or less.
