Chiron - medicine man
Azurite and pewter 9mm rondelle beaded bracelet. Named after the Greek Centaur Chiron. Chiron was famous for his wisdom and knowledge of medicine, he was credited with the discovery of botany and pharmacy, the science of herbs and medicine.
The adornment and use of beads dates back thousands of years. The Tibetans, for example, created and wore healing beaded bracelets made from different types of wood, local stone and bones from yaks that died a natural death. Historically bead craftsmen were expected to keep bead-making skills a secret and in some cases risked their lives if they leaked valuable methods, Yikes! Here at team Spivey, no lives are threatened through the crafting of beaded bracelets :).
