Beads have a rich tradition and history, the oldest bead discovered dates to 108,000 b.c. Throughout the ages, beads have been used for barter, currency, and as the “world’s first form of adornment.” The humble bead can be made of glass or wood, of plastic, crystal or even barnacles. And it can be shaped into mosaics, necklaces, teapots and other countless creative and sculptural forms.
