Historical Context:
Whether for decorative, symbolic or religious purposes, beads have long been an important part of our cultural identity. We give them meaning and importance far beyond what might be expected of these often-simple baubles. They represent the powers of evil and good, and convey intricate messages through their arrangement. They transform plain objects into items of extraordinary beauty. Whether wood, glass, seeds, plastic or metal, beads are an integral and often overlooked element of our cultural life.
