I suppose it is safe to say that “at all times” in human civilization semi-precious beads have been used in jewelry ornaments. Approximately 38,000 years ago or more France was the first to use semi-precious beads for adornments. Semi-precious beads are part of our world’s natural treasures. Today they are processed in all shapes, round, oval, rondelle, tubes, stars and more. I suppose it is also safe to say millions of jewelry designs can come forth from semi precious beads alone.
For the bead lovers of this world, semi-precious beads are one of our favorites to see, to use within jewelry designs and to learn about. Ever wonder about the origin of some of these beads? I do all the time. Here is a list of categories of the semi precious beads. In other articles I plan to have pictures and more descriptions of the great variety found in semi-precious beads.
