Like the prehistoric stone carvings found in caves, this antique silver bead is embellished with a pattern of triple spirals, a Pre-Christian symbol of Celtic beliefs. The added dots are a creation of the bead designer at Tierracast. This hefty bead, with an inner hole diameter of 4mm, is ready to go with multiple strands of leather or cord. It would look great added as a finishing bead in Odyssey on Waxed Linen. Isn’t that fitting? The linen comes from Ireland. Manufactured in California by TierraCast of metal both lead and nickel-free, these beads are considered hypoallergenic.
