flaw uses the Fibonacci sequence to create voids in the Nautilus necklace. Traced back to the Sanskrit poetry of Piṅgala’s Chandaḥśāstra (200 BC), the Fibonacci sequence was introduced into the west by mathematician Leonardo of Pisa (known as Fibonacci) in Liber Abaci (1202). The sequence begins with 0, 1, and adding together the latter two integers determines the subsequent integer: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765 and so on.
The Fibonacci sequence is related to the Golden Ratio and present in nature, among other things in the growth of plants, flowers and shells. The most well known example is the Nautilus shell.
