Seed Bead Patterns (4/20/2015)

2015 April 20

A Little Seed Bead History: Adding beads to clothing can be found as far back as the Late Old Stone Age (the Upper Paleolithic). These were large beads of shell or ivory. What we think of as beadwork, using small seed beads, is also quite old. There are beaded items in Egypt, using small faience beads, dating back 4000 years. Other early examples tend to be rare because the cloth or leather on which the beads were sewn disintegrate. There are several beaded items in the Shoso-in Temple in Nara, Japan, dating to the 8th century A.D. Beadwork is recorded in India at an early date. There are 9th century B.C.references to braiding beads into hair and horse tails. Around 300 B.C. Buddhist monks were admonished not to wear beaded shoes. The Bead Site
