Toroidal Space



As long as she didn't try to make sense of it, Donna was fascinated by mathematics. It boggled the mind, actually; she was quite sure that it was really an elaborate fraud perpetuated by mathematicians; they all just pretended to understand it and laughed over jello shots in bars whose entrances were designed with fractal geometry and were therefore invisible to the rest of the world.

Donna had lots of interesting theories.

True, her eyes glazed over at the mere mention of statistical anomalies; she wouldn't know a standard deviation from a non-standard one. But she felt things. Deeply. She was a true mathematician, in a non-linear way.

I just love this bracelet! I'm becoming fasinated by the fact that mathematics and geometry play such a great role in making some jewelery. That to me is incredible. Who knew math could be so beautiful?

Cathey said...

Incredible bangle! Will there be a tutorial coming soon (she says wishfully)?

Cynthia Newcomer Daniel said...

This one is a variation on a beAd Infinitum tutorial, so I won't be publishing it. However, if you have their tutorial, all you need do is change one side (the inside) to 4mm beads, and instead of making each bead separately, I "stacked" them, letting them share a wall. I didn't embellish the inside edge, but everything else is pretty much the same as in their tutorial.

What does it mean to be a mathematician in a non-linear way? My mind is doing backflips imagining the potential for non-linear engineers, architects and healers. Your work is inspiring.

Cynthia Newcomer Daniel said...

Dr. Katherine Dale: I have no idea, actually, it just sounded like an interesting idea. Maths and I have a love-hate relationship.
