Math and Art: Custom Pi Necklace


My contribution to Pi Day Celebrations:  a student-made necklace that encodes the first 80 or so digits of pi in beads!

Starting with the pendant as 3, the student carefully strung the beads in a circle (clockwise) according to the following mapping:

Thus, you can read off 3.14159265358, and so on.  A truly thoughtful, creative, and inspired work!  I think the student’s original inspiration might have been this other pi-themed necklace.
