This bead has a deeply carved pattern of double scrolls on its surface. Its strong presence is emphasized by the symmetry of the curves and their progression around the bead.
The double scroll is meant to embody the spirit of the sheep who live high in the mountains, negotiating high rocky cliffs without falling. Their legendary climbing skill helps them survive harsh conditions. Their strong horns are an unmistakable attribute of this hardy species.
The Spiral is a symbol of creativity, and one of the most universal human symbols. It came into use during the Neolithic times, when the people lived so closely connected to the Earth. They saw this pattern of curving mystery everywhere in nature, and adopted it as one of the earliest elements of artistic expression.
The measurements of this bead are 7/8" W x 7/16" H x 7/16" D. It’s 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.
