Beads and Beading in Asia

 

To accurately categorize the objects has proven to be somewhat tricky. As it is, so many "artifacts" are indeed hybrids: they may have been manufactured with materials from one place, then shipped into another region altogether, to be marketed and sold there.

Our promise to you is, that we try to place the items as best as we can. While we are doing more intensive research, you may notice that some objects will be moved into a different category. But then, that's exactly the beauty of beads: connecting societies over distance and time. Enjoy!

Please stay posted.

Until the brick-and-mortar museum is ready, you can see many of the artifacts in this virtual museum. Thousands have yet to be photographed and catalogued, and they will be added as time allows.

Asia has been prolific in exporting beads during the past twenty years or so. Freshwater Pearls, Glass Beads, Metal Beads or beads of shell, fabric, natural stone, plastic and any other imaginable material has been used to produce a cornucopia of beads in all sizes, colors and shapes.

Particularly China has flooded the market not only with beads, but it also has become a significant manufacturer in the finished jewelry industry. From fine jewelry to fashion pieces, beaded items were designed to meet the taste of the Western world. Often, these designs were created by established designers in the USA or Europe, then manufactured by hand in China to land in American/European stores.

These pieces are typically not included here, but you may rather find them in the areas where they were sold.
