Unique Beaded Jewelry Throughout The Years

Beaded jewelry is actually the oldest form of jewelry known dating back as far as the ice age. The first documented “bead” dates back to the year 38,000 BC and the cavemen made these beads out of animal bones, teeth, seashells and stones. In the Victorian era beads were made of carved bone, ivory, cloisonné and were highly decorative. The 1960’s brought about large bright colored beads of Czechoslovakia glass, Lucite and Bakelite. Although the materials that beads were made out of might have changed over the years, one thing will never change – unique beaded jewelry will always be in style.
