FACTS & HISTORY: Organic materials left over from hunts and scavenging were one of the earliest materials used for adornment in prehistoric times. Along the coasts, people pierced and strung seashells. In Mongolia and Siberia, fossilized ostrich and dinosaur eggshells were also drilled into beads in 10,000 BC. As early as 16,000 BC, Chinese societies were using bone and shell beads as adornment.
