An ancient form of currency and tooth replacement, beads are an integral component of modern jewelry. Today?s Groupon opens up a world of aesthetic potentiality with $30 worth of beads and beading supplies at Rockin? Beads for $15. Let the bedazzlement begin and let the era of debedazzlement end.Druids also used beads for ceremonial purposes during their annual Festival of Eye Contact and twice-yearly Bead Swallowing Contests. Valuable beads were used to propose marriage and less valuable beads were used to propose divorce, which was common due to unresolved Oedipal issues. Archeologists today find only a small number of Druid beads but a surprisingly large number of teeth.
