Depression Bead Workshop

Depression Bead Workshop

130 Turner Street, Beaufort, NC | (252) 728-5225

August 11, 2016 | 10:00 am-1:00 pm

August 11, 2016
10 am – 1 pm

As part of the Beaufort Historical Association’s Living History series, Gigi Koehler will conduct a depression bead workshop on Thursday, August 11th at 10:00 am in the Beaufort Historic Site’s Welcome Center, 130 Turner Street.

Ms. Koehler will demonstrate the way depression beads are made out of rolled paper, and then strung together to create unique necklaces and bracelets.  Although they originated during the Victorian Era, the beads got their name because women and girls during the Great Depression made jewelry out of paper instead of purchasing more costly items.  Despite the inexpensive source, the paper beads added a vibrant pop of color to the wearer.
