This bead has the great texture of Pine Cone carved on its surface. Like animals with spines, this built in defense system offers beautiful protection.
Pine Cones form on a mathematical pattern call the Fibonnaci Sequence. This type of growth produces spirals that follow a regular progression, creating order and beauty through geometry.
Inside each tightly closed platelet of a Pine Cone's spiny exterior lies a tiny seed. When conditions are just right, the cone opens, and releases them to the wind.
Pine Cones are a reminder that you can open yourself to creativity when the conditions are right, and the very act of doing so enhances the beauty of the cycle.
The measurements of this bead are 3/8" W x 7/16" H x 7/16" D. Its internal diameter is 7mm, so it fits on to any neck chain, slide bracelet chain, leather collar, bracelet or cord with a diameter of 6mm or less.
