Beaded Artifacts, Animals & Dolls

Beaded Artifacts, Animals & Dolls
The history of beadwork spans at least 5000 years. Bead making and bead embroidery has been practiced long before the last major ice age, with beads fashioned from seashells, seeds, broken eggshells – any colourful discard of nature. Since the first person strung the first bead, almost every culture has prized beadwork.
