Jewelry made out of beads is a very old art form that dates back to the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. Gold, silver, clay, lac, copper, ivory, wood, etc were used to make beads. Archeologists have found both finished as well as unfinished beads from excavation sites at Harrapa and Mohenjodaro. Even during the Mughal period, bead jewelry was in fashion, and jewelry was made from beads of every size and shape.

Handmade Bead Jewelry

Banaras in India is one of the largest producers of bead jewelry and they are exported all over the world. The beads that are used to make bead jewelry are hard to craft and are a very time consuming process and entails hard work. The beads are chiseled to get the required shape and then a hole is drilled into them for a string to pass through. Such beads made with patience are then stringed together to make beautiful piece of jewelry. Craftsmen from Karnal city in India are famous for making beads out of silver that are hollow in nature and sterling silver which is becoming popular with the younger generation now-a-days.
