DID YOU KNOW
Beading has touched numerous cultures as it has continued to develop. Bead weaving is believed to have started almost 70,000 years ago. While today beading and beaded jewelry is mainly used as a source for beauty, when it first originated it actually was used for value. Only the rich could truly afford the gorgeous beads, and many people would even trade their beads in the place of money. However, the first true piece of beaded jewelry came from when people had beads that they could not continuously carry around. Without a purse or container to hold them in, they simply sewed them onto leather straps and wore them around their neck. Soon wearing beads for beauty caught on after that, often becoming a symbol of one’s wealth and class; and, it was even believed that wearing these beads would bring you good fortune and wisdom because they were so beautiful.
