A little history of how the rice bead necklace came to be... Rice has a long history in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Rice originally came to the United States in 1694, when a ship sailing from Madagascar was blown off course by a storm. Landing in Charleston for repairs, the captain expressed his gratitude by giving the governor of the colony a handful of rough rice grains. From this small amount, rice became a dominant commodity and export of the coastal rivers. Today, the shape and texture of rice beads symbolize Charleston's long and bountiful history from humble agricultural beginnings. Two length necklaces are available, matching earrings, and bracelets. Silver plated
