This necklace is a Fibonacci Spiral. Fibonacci Spiral

The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...

The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it.

  • The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1)
  • The 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2),
  • And the 5 is (2+3),
  • and so on!

It is that simple!

Here is a longer list:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946, 17711, 28657, 46368, 75025, 121393, 196418, 317811, ...

This necklace is a Fibonacci Spiral. 

The Fibonacci Sequence/Spiral is closely related to the Golden Ratio. The Golden ratio is the whole length divided by the long part

is also equal to

the long part divided by the short part.

The golden ratio (symbol is the Greek letter "phi" shown below)
