This bead shows the moon moving through its monthly phases. As the Moon changes from a slim crescent to a full, luminous disk the evident passage of time becomes a notable cycle, which we mark as months of the year.
The Moon's position in the sky in relation to the horizon also helps us know which season we are transitioning into.
The Moon is a symbol of our ability to honor the progression of all things. The clean crisp outline of this familiar shape in the night sky reminds us to notice how we see ourselves over time.
The Moon can also be emblematic of the unique female perspective that comes from regular cycles throughout the year.
The measurements of this bead are 1/4" W x 5/16" H x 5/16" D. Its 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.
