Victorian bead findings
Bracelets often made with intricate two-hole slider beads, have a fascinating history. For example, the Victorian slider bracelet came about when wrist watches gained popularity. Before women wore the time on their wrists, they wore it on a neck chain where it was stabilized with something called a station. Usually, a woman-owned many of these stations to coordinate with her clothing, so that when wrist watches came into fashion, these pieces sat unused in her jewelry box or tray. These curious bead findings were thus lined up, spaced with beads or small gold balls, and called slide bracelets. Using delicate jewelry making beads available from your favorite bead store online, you can re-create these charming relics of a gentler time.
