Charleston Rice Bead Jewelry

Rice came to the United States in 1694. A ship sailed from the island of Madagascar bound for England and was blown off course by a storm. It was forced to land at the colony of Charleston, South Carolina for repairs. The people there were kind to the captain and his men and in gratitude the captain gave the governor of the colony a handful of rough rice grains before he sailed on to England. The grains were used by the colonists for seed. From this small amount of seed, the people of the colony grew enough rice to supply South Carolina and other neighboring colonies. The rice beads you view are a replica of the American rice before it was husked. It represents part of what became a staple for the colonists in Charleston and the surrounding areas. May it serve as a reminder of all that South Carolina needed to forge through the hard times that lay ahead for the colonists. Charleston Collections is proud to make available to you, this beautiful "Rice Bead Jewelry".
