OHM also salutes the fact that so many creative people help create our beads and each input, each variation, each new idea moves us forward adding each variation in the chain in order to find balance.
DNA is the abbreviation for deoxyribonucleic acid and is the molecule that contains the genetic code of all organisms, including animals, plants, even bacteria. DNA is within each cell of that organism and tells that cell what proteins to make. With a double helix shape -- like a ladder twisted into a spiral -- DNA was discovered in the 1950’s.
Each rung, or STEP UP on the ladder, is a pair of nucleotides: A (adenine) only pairs with T (thymine), and C (cytosine) only pairs with G (guanine). The pairs are held together by hydrogen bonds. Although the pairs are always fixed, they can come in any order up and down the ladder and this sequence writes the code of life that tell our cells what to do.
Each time DNA replicates, the hydrogen bonds are broken and the ladder separates into two single strands. As a new DNA strand is created for each half of the ladder, matching up A to T and C to G until the molecule is complete again. However, when DNA is copied, variations are created. These mutations can harm or help the organism as it evolves.
OHM's double helix ANOTHER VARIANT celebrates this evolution forward through changes and improvements of chance. The double helix spirals in a circle which makes a lovely spacer on your bracelet and calls to mind the delicate match-up of codes that make each one of us unique and special.
