Astraeus - astrology
Apatite and African glass 6mm beaded bracelet. Named after the Titan god of the dusk and winds, and the art of astrology. Astraeus was the father of the Stars and the four seasonal Winds.
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.
