Atlas - endurance
Multi tiger's eye and pewter 8mm beaded bracelet. Named after the Titan god Atlas. Atlas was said to have been skilled in philosophy, mathematics and astronomy. In antiquity, he was credited with inventing the first celestial sphere. In some texts, he is even credited with the invention of astronomy itself.
Through the ages, beads have been used by nearly every culture as a form of art, prayer, a symbol of an individual’s social status, and as a medium of barter for supplies. Today and for the unforeseeable future, the art and love of beading will continue to be an important part of every culture worldwide.
