This bead is reminiscent of machinery, and particularly a geared wheel. Potentiality is inherent in machinery even if it is standing still; the power it can generate lies within. Gears need to mesh with other notched discs to make larger parts function, and this symbolizes our ability to fit new information into our own inner workings.
There is tremendous energy in well-designed systems, and a satisfaction in precision tools working well. When we understand the ways we function best in the world, we can be instrumental in achieving our own success.
The Gear is also a symbol of the ability to work well with others, as part of a larger whole. By being able to share the work load we create a productive community.
The measurements of this bead are 1/4" 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.
