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!

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.
