The Microphyte beaded bead resembles a colony of tiny cells, and gets its name from a diverse group of microscopic plants. However, despite its organic look, this beaded bead is built using a defined underlying symmetry. This structure uses the geometry of a cuboctahedron to combine bicone crystals, drop seed beads, peanut-shaped seed beads, and Japanese round seed beads together for an eclectic collection of textures all woven into one beaded bead. The Microphyte beaded bead is an excellent size for a solo pendant or as a focal in a larger necklace.
